Closing the Gap
Closing the gap is a shorthand expression for all of the work to remove the barriers that many of our young people face and remove the pattern between poverty and low attainment and future life chances.
The Education and Children’s Services Directorate aims to improve life chances for all of Fife’s young people and we believe that high levels of attainment and achievement are fundamental to this.
Year on year attainment in Fife is increasing for all our young people. However, some young people face disadvantage in their learning as a result of a range of factors including poverty, LAC and gender. As a result many of these young people are not achieving their full potential.
Fife’s continued focus on leadership, pedagogy and partnership working aims to break the cycle and reduce inequity in educational outcomes, improving life chances for all.
