The current national and international priorities focus on tackling inequality through raising attainment and reducing poverty. Current policy frameworks are underpinned by UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (1989) and tackle inequality through working sensitively supporting and involving families, early years intervention and improvement, literacy and pedagogy and practice.
