Abstract

In November 2006 the government began a project in 10 local areas in England to see if boarding school might be a possible option for children and young people who could no longer stay all the time with their parents or carers or who were facing difficulties such as not attending school and not getting on with their families. The evaluation took place to find out more about: - The things that worked well about the project; - In what ways some young people could benefit from going to boarding school; - The things that could make the project work better. The evaluation also aimed to help the government decide whether to extend the project to other parts of England.
