This research review tells us what works in closing the gap in educational achievement for children and young people living in poverty, including white working-class boys. It is based on a rapid review of the research literature involving systematic searching of literature, and places a focus on the highest-quality evidence of ‘what works’. It summarises the best available evidence that will help service providers to improve services and, ultimately, outcomes for children, young people and their families.
