We are an award-winning social enterprise working to close the educational achievement gap for children and families in the UK. Gap Education has a mission to end educational inequality so that every child can achieve their potential, regardless of their starting point or background. We do this through facilitating effective parental engagement, intervention and signposting of further support, helping achieve better outcomes for their children – improving attendance, behaviour, attainment and well-being.
Help us narrow the gap
Research tells us that the majority of the causes of the attainment gap lie outside of the school gates, around 80%. Typically schools spend less than 5% of their pupil premium budget addressing these causes. Our theory of change is based upon our four core values:
- Worth and potential in every person
- The power of families and community to bring transformation
- The importance of an individuals’ well-being, resilience and aspiration
- Parents as the key stakeholders in a child’s life and a key part of the solution
