Children in care sometimes find it hard at school What problems do children living in care face?
Children living in care can often be moved around a lot, which means they may have to move schools frequently.

Being the new kid in class can be tough, and one in six children in care say they are bullied.

And more than half of children in care leave school with no qualifications.

Also, there aren't enough foster carers around and that means some children are placed with families that are either too far away or too different from their own.
