Children in need: review

The Department for Education (DfE) has published interim findings from its review on children in need, which includes: how professionals who work with vulnerable children can better identify children in need and understand the impact of their traumatic experiences; and what schools and social care can do to help these children have a positive experience of education. Findings from the interim report include: at least 1 in 10 pupils in state schools in 2016-17 had been in need at some point in the previous six years. The DfE has also published: an analysis of responses from its call for evidence; a preliminary longitudinal analysis of children in need between 2014/15 and 2016/17; and a summary of evidence from a literature review on effective interventions for improving educational outcomes of children in need.
