WHAT IS MATERIAL DEPRIVATION?
Material deprivation is the inability to afford basic resources, which can impact a pupil’s educational achievement. This will mean pupils are unable to afford things like sufficient food, heating or clothing and educational resources, which is subsequently very likely to affect educational performance and lead to underachievement.
