Supporting Pupils and Families: A Case Study of Two English Extended Secondary Schools
Rose, Richard; Smith, Andy; Feng Yan,
Management in Education, v23 n2 p57-62 2009
The Department for Education and Skills (DfES, 2005a) described an extended school as one providing activities and services, often beyond the school day, to address the needs of its pupils, their families and the wider community. Extended schools have been established to provide a hub upon which services can be focused and where additional facilities, such as breakfast clubs, after-hours clubs and holiday activities, are provided as a means of supporting families in areas of need or deprivation. This article describes research which evaluated the efficacy of two extended schools and discusses the ways in which these have operated to provide multi-agency support for young people and their families.
