Every Child Journal

Every Child Journal

Subscribers to our publication services benefit from a multi-user site licence so that all their staff and governors can have 24/7 online access to the content, online issues, education zones, knowledge banks and article archives relating to their purchased publications.

Aspirations may be high, policies well-intentioned, but to those professionals working on the ground, delivering services to meet the needs of disadvantaged children on a shoestring, the gap between the ambitions we have for all children and the practicalities of delivering it has never seemed so daunting.

Every Child journal, now in association with the special needs charity, Achievement for All, explores these territories, sharing best practice, new policy making and research. We highlight evidence-based practice and new trends to help professionals find their way in a rapidly changing world.
