Read the 2021-22 FBB Impact Report!
Today, FBB launches our Impact Report for the 21-22 academic year.
How do we support the most vulnerable young people to thrive in school?
This question underpins everything we do at Football Beyond Borders. The disruption caused by the Covid-19 pandemic has had a profound effect on the social and emotional development of young people.
Last year, despite this backdrop, we made great progress towards answering our driving question, but we also saw some worrying indicators linked to some deeply concerning national trends, such as data showing the GCSE awarding gap (sometimes known as the ‘attainment gap’) showing the largest increase between poor children and their peers since 2011.
Despite these obstacles, there is hope. Our Impact Report shows that long-term relational work with young people leads to better outcomes.
The report found that:
FBB students were eleven times more likely to receive their GCSE pass in English and maths than their peers who were excluded.
95% of FBB’s at-risk students finished the year in school.
Social Emotional Learning skills improve the longer young people are with us.
We hope you enjoy reading the report.
