Child Poverty

Child poverty

The NEU’s No Child Left Behind campaign is fighting to break down the barriers poverty puts up around equal access to education. You can find out more by following this link: 

In the UK today, 29% of our children – 4.2 million – are trapped in poverty. That means the equivalent of 9 pupils in every class of 30 have been let down.

As educators, we know first-hand how poverty limits the life chances of children and significantly affects their educational experience and outcomes in school. We are calling on the Government to leave no child behind.
