Our  Study Support/Homework club takes place iat the Idea Store Whitechapel. The room provided a stimulating environment with lots of resources available to children to use, including a computers. The main emphasis of the homework club is to provide practical and structured activities to enhance the children’s learning in Literacy and numeracy.

A significant number of children who are referred to attend our homework/study support session showed a lack of self esteem in the classroom, particularly in whole class session. The children are at present showing good improvements in applying their Literacy and Numeracy skills in their class. They have made a significant progress in self confidence and independence. The children who found it difficult to speak up in a large group are now contributing more fully to their sessions.

The children have developed their phonics, spellings and their reading skills. They have also made progress in their maths skills are more confident to contribute their ideas and answers during whole class sessions. The tutor support individual children to complete their work, giving lots of praise and encouragement. Children progress is tracked through a record of the work completed, rather than through diagnostic testing.

Why study support significant

Research shows that in many deprived areas like Tower Hamlets Borough, where lessons and learning-based activities are not available, there is a high trend of crime rates, which suggests that children and teenagers need to be kept busy to avoid this from happening. Tower Hamlets has the highest unemployment rate and the percentage of children eligible for free school meals in secondary schools is the highest in England by a clear 16% points.

Study Support is significant because there is substantial research evidence confirming the positive impact it can have on children’s’ motivation, self confidence, attendance and performance, broadening of experience and on school improvement. Research has shown has shown that good study support opportunities provide an excellent, cost effective means of raising standards and increasing levels of pupils motivation.

 

 

Meeting Individual Needs

At OETP, teachers plan carefully so that children work at a level that will meet their needs and to inspire them to achieve the highest standards. Teachers would spend individual time with your child helping them to reflect on their work and improve it. Students are encouraged to complete accredited ICT training offered at level 1-3 by eDCC/OCR.

Inclusion and Equality

At OETP, we believe that all children are entitled to the best possible education and that the education offered by the school should cater for the needs of its pupils. We already have diverse students from school from various ethnicities. OETP values and respects people from all backgrounds and children are expected to work and co-operate with each other.

Discipline and Behaviour

The example and high expectations of teachers create a positive and secure environment.  We expect children to be polite, so all the adults are polite to the children.  We respect the children and expect them to respect each other.  Children in all classes elect representatives to the School Council where they can raise issues that are worrying them, or make suggestions to improve school life.

When children behave well we praise and encourage them.  If there is a problem we discuss it with the child and encourage children to discuss it with each other, so that they are actively involved in improving behaviour.  If unacceptable behaviour persists we invite parents to work with the child and teacher to discuss and implement strategies for improvement.

Meeeting Individual Needs

At OETP, teachers plan carefully so that your child works at a level that will meet their needs and to inspire them to achieve the highest standards. Teachers would spend individual time with your child helping them to reflect on their work and improve it. Teachers use a range of grouping methods appropriate to a particular task. Your child would work on his/her own or work in groups. Sometimes groups of children of different abilities may cooperate over work. Teachers may bring children together who are at the same level when appropriate.

Homework

At OETP we believe children learn best when parents and teachers work together.  Parents can help in the classroom by hearing children read, sharing their skills and also participating on outings. At home, we hope parents are able to share the enjoyment of books and maths games which children take home on a regular basis every week, and to hear them read regularly.  Parents can also help support class work when teachers ask children to do some research or to try to collect objects to enrich school projects.  Details of such and other homework are provided to all parents by the class teachers at a team meeting at the beginning of each term. Homework is a collective responsibility of the class teacher, pupil and the parent or carer. Homework demands should not infringe on children’s rights to play, physical activities and rest. The school views home work as an extension of the learning process and not as a test or competition.

 

 Health & Safety

  • A child protection policy has been implemented.
  • A compulsory register of pupils daily attendance will be recorded which will form the basis of any emergency evacuation that may be required.
  • The classroom door will be closed approximately 10 minutes after class commences to ensure no children leave the premises.
