The W-Ever 6 Attainment Gap Public
Downloadable Contentopen in viewer
Disadvantaged white British students, known as the W-Ever 6 group, perform 38% worse than non disadvantaged white British students on their General Certificate of Secondary Education exams. Among all ethnicities, the W-Ever 6 group has one of the largest disparities in performance when compared with other white British students. At Gospel Oak Primary and Nursery School, we investigated the factors causing this gap in attainment by conducting interviews, surveys, and observational research. On average the W-Ever 6 group misses school more, does fewer extracurriculars, and has lower aspirations. Closing the W-Ever 6 attainment gap is effectively done by fostering a supportive school community that assists parents in providing their children with strong educational engagement at home.
