Primary Attainment

Description

This programme explores how Brackenhill Primary School in Bradford ensures that its looked-after children keep up with their peers' educational attainment.

There is a focus on two sisters who have had a deeply troubled and unsettled upbringing. One of the girls was unwilling to speak on admission to the school and both have moved home many times.

Teachers and support staff explain how their strategies almost always begin out of the classroom, in areas which are designed to increase the child's feelings of security and emotional well-being.

Encouraging friendship networks and increasing self-esteem can lead not only to a happier child but one who is much more willing to learn. Support staff concentrate on providing one-to-one support for under-performing LAC.
