Supplementary schools have been an efficient way of supplying communities with enriched educational sessions that have challenged the status quo, also due to their accessibility, they are considered an effective way to facilitate programmes that not featured in mainstream education. This long community pillar has a long-standing history with its source rooted in survival against discrimination. In the 1960s, Black communities in the UK came together to create 'supplementary schools' as a way of fighting back against the racism and inequality that their children were facing in mainstream schooling. This enabled neighbourhoods to empower themselves through volunteers of parents, activists and community support workers, mentors and religious leaders. The aim was to counteract the narratives of Black characteristic defamation and eradicate racial disparity across the many regions of inequalities.
The end goal is to boost children’s confidence, raise standards and give each child a sense of belonging and identity. This Saturday school will serve KS1 - KS4 students and will be located in South London.
