What is No Child Left Behind?

No Child Left Behind (NCLB) is a project in Cheltenham that aims to help all young people to thrive.

In 2018, Cheltenham partners commissioned a needs assessment that highlighted that there were around 4400 children and young people in our town living in poverty. It also showed that, when compared to their more affluent peers, they faced significant challenges such as poorer educational attainment, higher rates of school exclusion, poorer mental and physical health, were more likely to be under social care and were more likely to be victims of crime. We wanted to change this and created No Child Left Behind.
