    Abstract

    This project was commissioned by Save the Children to inform the planning of a long term programme of activities in West Dunbartonshire Council. Save the Children has identified in 2008 the improvement of the educational experiences and life chances of children and young people living in severe poverty as one of its main objectives. As part of this initiative, this study was commissioned in March 2009. Its aim was to inform future interventions in the field of home-school partnerships that will improve educational outcomes for children living in severe and persistent poverty in West Dunbartonshire. This research was designed as a qualitative study aimed to report on current initiatives and practice in relation to home-school partnerships and service delivery for the poorest families. It also aimed to identify programming opportunities that could form part of a long term collaborative programme of activities between West Dunbartonshire Council and Save the Children.
