Unfinished business: where next for extended schools?

Oliver Diss and Megan Jarvie

This report takes stock of the extent and success of extended schools by mapping the current provision and funding mechanisms, and comparing this with parental demand for services. It also considers the role these services have in tackling disadvantage and poverty – through supporting children’s learning and development, and providing childcare to enable parents to work.
