    Abstract

    CELCIS (Centre for excellence for looked after children in Scotland), based at the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow, is committed to making positive and lasting improvements in the wellbeing of Scotland’s children living in and on the edges of care. We welcome this opportunity to highlight how experiencing poverty affects vulnerable children and young people at school, including their attainment and their achievement, and consider what can be done to further support children and their families.
