Outside School/ Home Background Explanations

1)      Material Deprivation

Material deprivation is the idea that a lack of money leads to disadvantages such as an unhealthy diet and unsatisfactory housing.

Certain groups have less money than others, which means they cannot make the most of their educational opportunities.

Poverty can result in working class children living in damp homes, making them more prone to infections and illness, which results in them missing school days.

Older working class children are more likely to work part time to support their studies or have to care for younger siblings, which affects their attendance at school, whereas middle class parents can more easily afford to pay for childcare.

Hi you've  got some good notes here. 

I did this examand this question and got 100% for the whole paper.

A useful tip is to relate to real life scenarios.. before my exam I was watching the news and there was a school in east london who was divided into class and ability, so there was Ashdown and Delamere.. have a look on the BBC website :)

hope it helps
