The Cost of the School Day project


How do the ways in which schools do things impact on children from low income households? And how can schools ensure that all children, regardless of income, are protected from stigma, receive the same opportunities and are able to make the most of the school day?

Based on research with over 300 children and young people and over 100 staff in Glasgow, the Cost of the School Day project presents the key financial barriers to participation for children from low income households and children’s views on the best ways to overcome them.
