Our work is joined up to provide integrated educational, social and practical support to refugee and migrant children and their families.
After-School Homework Club
We run an after-school homework club during term-time to support children aged 6-11.
Our after-school homework club for primary school children runs on Tuesday to Thursday afternoons in term time. We meet at the Granville Plus Family Wellbeing Centre in Kilburn.
The club is a relaxed place for children to work on their homework, English language, reading, Maths and school projects - and a place to have fun and make friends. We divide our time between homework and play and art activities.
Our holiday club takes children all over London during school holidays.
The trips include kayaking, ice skating and climbing, as well as visits to Hampstead Heath and museums like the V&A Museum.
Children play, socialise and express themselves creatively in a nurturing and supportive environment. This helps improve their social and communication skills, confidence and sense of belonging… and they have a lot of fun!
I feel more confident talking to new people
Our mentors provide one-to-one educational guidance and support to refugee and migrant pupils.
Mentors help mentees with their schoolwork and related skills. Many also offer advice and practical help around careers and accessing further and higher education.
Mentoring has a wealth of positive impacts on young people’s lives, including improved English proficiency and academic performance as well as heightened confidence, wellbeing and ambitions for the future.
Women's English Classes (ESOL)
Salusbury World provides English classes for parents of children attending our catchment schools led by a qualified ESOL teacher and enthusiastic volunteers.
Our aim is to enable our ESOL students to grow in confidence and to develop language skills to enable engagement with everyday use of English. It is mostly mothers who come to the classes and they speak little or no English. We explore topics such as shopping, travelling, medical appointments, parents evenings and common cultural situations.
Our ESOL language classes are also an opportunity for women to build social networks, and we open up conversations about the experience of building a new life in London.
