Poverty Proofing the School Day Conference: Tackling Poverty and Inequality in our Schools
Organised by Children North East
Thursday 25th January 2018

9:30 am – 3:30pm
Manchester Hall, 36 Bridge St, Manchester, M3 3BT

Poverty Proofing the School Day is an innovative programme that identifies barriers to learning for students who do not have the same financial resource as their better off peers. This conference will explain the poverty proofing ethos sharing best practice from schools and delivery partners across the country, as well as looking at the evaluation completed by Newcastle University identifying a wide spectrum of positive impact on the school day around inclusion, attendance and attainment. The conference will consider how schools in the North West can respond to the poverty proofing work and explore how it can be best implemented in the region.
