Action for Children works alongside schools and families to enable children and young people to overcome barriers to learning and improve their educational attainment.
As an experienced UK children’s charity, Action for Children understands that there are many reasons why a child may be feeling unhappy or distressed. Issues such as conflict, domestic abuse, bereavement, mental or physical ill health, poor parenting and bullying can all have a huge impact on a child’s capacity for learning.
Action for Children improve the support for the child so that they are:
ready to learn when they arrive at school
able to concentrate in lessons and behave appropriately
able to attend school and arrive on time
able to form appropriate relationships with other children.
