Research shows that disadvantage is a huge factor in student performance. But we don’t believe a postcode or background should determine a student’s future.
We support schools with an ICSEA value below 1000 (including many special schools with a zero ICSEA). ICSEA stands for Index of Community Socio-Educational Advantage – check values at www.myschool.edu.au.
More than 4,600 schools in Australia, across the government, independent and Catholic sectors, are eligible for our support.
