Children's Supplementary School
We promote child education through the Rainbow Club, a supplementary Saturday school set up after extensive consultation with the local community and other local voluntary & statutory service providers.
The school is for children aged 4-11 and is divided into Reception, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2.
They learn numeracy, literacy, music, art, and sports. They can also learn baking once a month. We are open to all nationalities and religions, and currently work with 44 different nationalities across services.
All teaching is designed to improve children's ability to integrate successfully in the community and improve their self confidence.
We prioritise refugees and asylum seekers in the borough of Lewisham, and those children not yet in mainstream schools.
The classes take place every Saturday from 9:30am-1:15pm (term time only) at Leemore Central Community Hub, Bonfield Road, Lewisham SE13 5ES.
The Rainbow Club is funded by: BBC Children in Need, The Hilden Charitable Trust, Youth Music, Goldsmiths Company, Lewisham Small and Faith Grant and the People Health Trust.
