Fair Education Alliance Report 2018

Brightside is part of the Fair Education Alliance, a coalition of over 100 organisations working together to eradicate educational disadvantage. The Fair Education Alliance’s fourth annual report shows the progress made  in the past year.

The report measures the gaps between the most and least privileged students in five key areas – primary literacy and numeracy, GCSE attainment, post-GCSE destinations, university admission, and mental and emotional wellbeing – and sets out priorities for closing them.

Key Messages from the Report

The members of the Alliance have collectively identified three priorities that need to be achieved and rolled out across the whole system to make education fair for every child:

  1. World-class teachers and leaders, particularly in the most disadvantaged areas
  2. An education system which develops the whole child, promoting emotional and social competencies alongside academic attainment
  3. Joined up support for all post-16 destinations, giving every student a choice about their future
