Quick overview The link between a child's background and their chances of success at school and in later life is strong but it need not be the determining factor in attainment. The book shows how schools can and do make a real difference for children who are poor, from disadvantages groups, are bilingual or who have special educational needs.
Product description

This book is a follow-up to the best-selling Trentham handbooks by Robin Richardson: "Here, There and Everywhere" (2005) and "Holding Together" (2009). It has the same engaging layout, with much use of case-studies, stories and pithy quotations. Most though not all of the practical examples are drawn from one local authority, Derbyshire, but are of wide relevance and interest, both nationally and internationally.
