Improving Educational Outcomes for Children Looked After at Home

Year: 2014
Topic: Education, Looked after at home
Author: Alison Hennessy, Graham Connelly, Vicki Welch

This briefing paper describes the first stage in an action research programme investigating the educational outcomes of looked after children in Scotland.

It is known that looked after children have poorer educational outcomes than their peers, with children looked after at home experiencing some of the poorest outcomes (Scottish Government, 2013). This is likely to be due to a complex range of issues, including problems associated with trauma, attachment issues, abuse or neglect, and placement instability.
