Save The Children have published new research on the life chances of children from poorer backgrounds

The report, Too Young To Fail finds that seven year-olds from poor backgrounds fall behind in basic skills such as reading compared to their more wealthy peers, often trapping them in a cycle of poverty for life.

The report highlights that progress has been made in improving the academic attainment of poorer children, but also calls for more to be done to give all children a fair start in life.
