On your marks: Young people in education, a guide for donors and funders

NPC’s report highlights for donors and funders the work of charities that are running vital services alongside schools and colleges.

Did you know?

  • Half of all primary schoolchildren are bullied.
  • 9% of 16 to 18 year olds are not in any form of education, employment or training

The report discusses whether funding academies is a good investment for donors and highlights other areas where donors could shape a child’s educational life, including:

  • tackling bullying
  • providing out-of-school activities, and
  • providing support for children with special educational needs.

 One charity told us that a child had said to them “verbal bullying isn’t taken seriously by our teachers. If you have some bruises they might take notice”.
