Teachers need better understanding of adopted children
Published: 28.01.15Adoption UK’S CEO Hugh Thornbery has been interviewed on radio station Banbury Sound about the charity’s aim of raising £10,000.
The money is to be rasied to provide schools with more understanding for adopted children after half (51 percent) of them failed to hit educational targets at junior schools last year.
Hugh tells listeners that Adoption UK wants teachers to have a better understanding of the needs of adopted children after three quarters of adoptive parents told the charity they feel their children are falling behind their classmates. The Reaching Their Full Potential appeal was launched on 2 December.
