This final report concerns an 18-month, Department for Education (DfE)-funded evaluation of the Social Pedagogy Pilot programme in residential children's homes in England. The study was a collaboration between researchers at the Universities of Bristol and York. It entailed detailed investigation of a sample of 30 residential children's homes distributed across England.

The overall aim of the research is to evaluate the implementation and impact of the social pedagogy pilot programme, and to consider whether a social pedagogic approach would be likely to have a positive effect within the context of English residential children's homes.
