The Cost of the School Day

The Cost of the School Day is a unique, year-long pilot project in Glasgow looking at the impact of poverty on the lives of children and young people and their access to an education. This report highlights that children and young people from low income families in Glasgow can find that costs across the school day act as a barrier to their participation at school. This can make pupils feel excluded and in some cases, may have a direct result on their ability to achieve.
