SUPPLEMENTARY SCHOOLS

Available support exclusive to Supplementary Schools based LBHF.

Here at Young H&F we are fortunate enough to have supplementary schools as part of our membership. These offer a wide range of educational activities for young people outside of school in a culturally specific setting.

In the 1960s, Black communities in the UK created 'supplementary schools' as a way of dealing with the racism and inequality that their children were facing in mainstream schooling.

Nowadays supplementary schools offer educational support such as (language, core curriculum, faith and culture) within the context of a specific ethnic, national, faith or physical community. They are established and managed by community members, generally on a voluntary basis.

As community-based organisations they act as crucial information and advocacy points for adults as well as children.

There are 3,000-5,000 such schools in England. (NRSCE)
