Supplementary schools supplement mainstream education by providing additional educational opportunities for children and young people.
Supplementary schools are usually managed and run by local groups or community organisations, including newly arrived communities. They take place in a variety of venues including mosques, churches, temples, gurdwaras, community centres and schools.
Most supplementary schools operate in the evenings and at weekends.
Many groups which operate for children and young people may be providing 'supplementary' educational activities, but will not think of themselves as 'Supplementary Schools'. This could include Brownies, Guides, Cubs and Scouts groups, for example.
In addition, there are a number of black and minority ethnic organisations providing other supplementary educational support to young people such as advice, advocacy etc.
Activities of supplementary schools might include
helping children with their national curriculum subjects, (particularly Mathematics, English and Science)
learning about the history and culture of the community
teaching children their mother tongue language and other languages of a cultural or religious significance
teaching children about a particular religion
curriculum enrichment activities such as trips, outings, arts activities, rites of passage work, group work, role modelling etc.
