The Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) is an independent charity dedicated to breaking the link between family income and educational achievement.
We do this by supporting schools to improve teaching and learning through better use of evidence. Improving attendance and reducing exclusions funding round
We know that school absenteeism (missed attendance as well as fixed and permanent exclusion) not only impacts on students’ attainment, but also on the likelihood of them becoming involved in violence and crime. It is also likely that many students with poor attendance or those being excluded from school are the most disadvantaged.
YEF and EEF are partnering to find, fund, and evaluate programmes and practices in England and Wales that could both keep children safe from involvement in violence and improve academic attainment, by reducing absenteeism.
