Reducing Early School Leaving and Underachievement
We want to reduce early school leaving and underachievement by looking at how to enable children to learn and thrive in schools and complete their education.
A short overview of the project
SCIREARLY is a three-year project funded by the European Commission looking at how best to enable children to learn and thrive in school and complete their education. School is a vital space for the development of every child. It is therefore of serious concern when children struggle and sometimes leave school early. We are a consortium of institutions from ten different European countries. We plan to build on research about what works well in schools and find out more about how some schools are able to keep their students at school, giving the children the best possible opportunities for learning and contributing to their wellbeing. We are going to work together with teachers, families, and others to develop policies and practices based on our research so that all children have the opportunity of achieving their full potential.
