Olympia Palikara, a Senior Lecturer in Educational Psychology, and Marie-Pierre Moreau, a Reader in Sociology of Education and Principal Investigator for this project, received the grant to carry out the study this year.
The project is titled 'International evidence on impact of funding linked to additional needs on participation and attainment by 16-19 year olds'. In this context, ‘additional needs’ refers to:
In many areas across the country the number of children being identified with Special Educational Needs (SEN) is rising. Schools currently receive extra funding based on the number of SEN children they have. With investment in schools under pressure, one of the things this study will look at is what effect, internationally, funding has on these pupils' outcomes at school.
There has always been a debate over the role of money in improving children's attainment at school; this project involves reviewing the literature in this area, with a focus on countries other than England (including oversea countries, as well as Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland).
