Charity number


School-Home Support (SHS) is a charity working with children and families to maximise educational opportunities and improve life chances. Partnering with schools, local authorities and communities, SHS looks beyond the classroom to understand and tackle the issues affecting children’s learning, such as poverty, housing, and mental health. Since 1984, we have used early intervention to break intergenerational cycles of deprivation and low aspiration, replacing them with children in school and ready to learn.

Our approach creates sustained change in families, improving school attendance, children's engagement in learning and behaviour at school.  In 2016-17 we worked with over 10,000 children and families. 

Our impact:-

73% of children who were persistently absent improved their attendance

82% of pupils identified as having behavioural problems improved their behaviour

82% of children where there was a concern improved their engagement in learning

75% of parents became more engaged with their child's learning
