Children’s Education Project

Supplementary Education

Our supplementary classes remain one of the most popular activities we run as Somali parents in this area seek better performance for their children.

The programme recruits Somali speaking tutors and carries out sessions to provide practical support on key areas of curriculum, including ICT, maths and science. This has been running on Saturdays and 2 hours for one weekday evening during the week. These sessions are coordinated to remedy pupil’s individual needs and areas of under achievements.

  • 45 children who attended regularly to this activity had shown 25% increase to last year’s number
  • Pupils who regularly attended our activities have performed better in their education.
  • 95% of 60 pupils who attended these activities have moved at least 1 level up in their KS1, KS2 and KS3. This represents substantial improvements in their school performances.
