There is a short film called "School Costs" which highlights the struggle of families on low incomes to meet the costs of their children attending school. This film has been produced with the support of the Educational Institute of Scotland (EIS) and Child Poverty Action Group.
EIS report in to Child Poverty
The film has been developed, along with the EIS report on the impact of child poverty, to provide some advice and guidance to teachers and other people working with families. There are practical examples of how schools can take account of child poverty and address key issues such as hunger, school uniform, equipment, homework, school trips, and fundraising.
