The purpose of this thematic review was to increase our understanding of how schools in a range of circumstances were defining and responding to ‘disadvantage’ in their development of extended services. In particular, it explored how they were targeting disadvantaged individuals and groups for particular services, and how they were encouraging take-up of services by those groups. It did this through small scale case studies of extended services in and around a sample fifteen schools in the North West and North East of England.
