Abstract


This briefing provides an overview of the research evidence on the impact of poverty on children and young people’s education and out-of-school learning opportunities. It focusses on evidence on the impact of poverty on children’s readiness to learn before they enter early years education, their achievement at school, and the factors that influence poor children’s education outcomes and their parents’ ability to engage in their children’s learning. Access to good quality education in and out of school, through other services, is also addressed. The briefing identifies key recommendations for tackling the underachievement of poor children, to increase their chances of success later on in life.
