Abstract

Schools have been identified as playing a key role in supporting the children of prisoners. This paper reports on a study which explored the support provision offered in schools to children who experience parental imprisonment. By interviewing school representatives, stakeholders, parents and children we illustrate the support available in schools, the issues that arise and ways in which support provision can be strengthened. Our findings indicate that children of prisoners often constitute a ‘forgotten’ group in schools and we suggest that an awareness of these children and the challenges they face needs to be raised amongst education practitioners and policy-makers.
