Esmée Fairbairn Foundation and the Sutton Trust have launched this £1m fund to support organisations to develop methods of working with parents to bridge attainment gaps in the early and primary school years. The aim is to develop evidence on approaches that work, could be scaled and contribute to best practice guidance for the sector as a whole. Funders will be looking for projects primarily targeted at children from disadvantaged backgrounds aged 2-6, with project delivery starting between April and September 2015.
