The head of Save the Children in Wales says it is 'not surprising' that poverty has an impact on a child's ability to perform well at school.
That is why this report really matters as it is young people themselves sharing their views and experiences with us. Every child has the potential to shine if given the chance. We can help to turn the 'small voices' in this report into a really 'big story' and by working together make sure that our generation is the one to end the link between poverty and education in Wales, which still holds so many of our children back from the futures they deserve.
