We have made two grants of £60,000 over three years and £40,000 over three years to Brixton Learning Collaborative and Clapham and Larkhall Collaborative respectively. These will fund the Shine on Saturday programme at each of these school clusters. This is a Saturday school providing ‘alternative and creative’ learning designed to boost attainment in English and Maths for underachieving primary school pupils in years 4, 5 & 6. The programme features small classes grouped by ability, is based at a school and runs 10am-3pm, for 30 Saturdays over three terms. Outcomes from previous awards have been good.
