Can you help? The Department for Education is consulting on what makes the difference to the educational outcomes of Children in Need.

“We need to develop a stronger evidence base, going beyond the data to look at what is happening in practice. At different stages in a child’s life, or when requiring different levels of statutory social care support, children’s needs will require a different response. At each of these stages, a child may work with a variety of professionals who offer support to a child and to their family, to improve a child’s circumstances.

Through the call for evidence, we want to understand how the work of professionals supporting Children in Need can make a difference to a child’s educational outcomes. Specifically, we are interested in:

  • how support is delivered or commissioned to help children
  • how this support is measured and evaluated
  • how this support influences educational outcomes”

Survey closes on 1 June 2018.
