The After-School Club - Free virtual study support
Due to the pandemic, some actiivities were moved online, such as the After School Club. Going digital has enabled our young people to stay on top of their curriculum, all through the lockdown, by offering supported learning in literacy, numeracy, and science. It has also enabled more young people to take part, without overcrowded classrooms. It’s also eliminated travel time and has no geographical limitations, so young people from other estates can take part in the same lessons. In terms of learning style, digital lessons require students to be more proactive in their learning, which has been reflected in the outcomes.
The only prerequisite is that your household has internet access and that you have an email address through which you are able to log in; the sessions are otherwise FREE of charge to you. You can choose which day of the week suits your child best, as the sessions run on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 5 - 7pm. Parents are asked to supervise their children, which provides you with an opportunity to get involved, too.
Sessions will continue until the end of term in the same digital format and will stop for the duration of the summer break but will be replaced by the Summer Programme. The digital model will most likely move to a blended model from September 2021 onwards, so that those families and children who prefer a physical presence, can take part, too.
If you would like to enrol your child, you can do so by contacting Christian Johnson on 07706 179851 or register on http://www.cefi.org.uk/contactus
