Targeted Summer School Programme

This year the Summer School programme will not be a general offer open to all as in previous years, but a more targeted offer. The Education Guarantee Executive Board has agreed to fund this small trial and we have been working with schools to identify vulnerable pupils that would benefit from attending.
You will only be able to apply for these courses if you have been invitedAlthough we will not be running a general Summer programme this year, parents will be able to find many other exciting courses in the Summer in Newham Magazine run by other services.


Before and after school clubs

Out of school services are for school-age children to play and learn and have fun in groups.

All our before and after school club providers are Ofsted registered and inspected. For more information and to apply for a place for your child contact the provider directly.
