Situation

The project will address low educational achievement and expectations of BMER children aged 7 – 14 year. We have identified through our experience working in this community problems such as: Majority of children are from large families living in overcrowded flats and parents are uneducated, unemployed or in low paid work, who cannot support their children academically. Children have low self-esteem, which leads to low self-expectation; and poor career ambitions and low aspirations.

Solution

The overall impact of our supplementary schools: 1. Improvement in attainment by at least one level for more than 70% of children. 2. Greater parental support for children and developing positive relationships between parents and school staff measured through feedback from parents and staff 3. Reduced risk of children's disengagement 4. Improved children’s confidence, social skills and self-esteem 5. School exclusions are reduced by at least 50% 6. Providing positive role models to children
