State of the countryside update: Children and educational services

Our State of the countryside update: Children and educational services aims to extend our understanding of the statistical picture of children and young people in rural England.

Many people find it difficult to accept that poverty and disadvantage can exist in sometimes beautiful surroundings. We hope that this update will provide understanding of the circumstance for the children in the countryside, together with challenging some perceptions of rural life for children and young people.

In painting a picture of children and young people living in rural areas we consider a wide range of topics and issues including population and migration, well-being and disadvantage, Children’s Centres and educational provision. The issues covered in the update should also be considered in the wider context of rural deprivation and isolation.

The update follows on from our earlier study Insights from users and providers of Children Centres in rural communities: Summary report
