Doing extracurricular activities with students ...

„Doing extracurricular activities with students is not only beneficial for teacher-student relationships but can also improve the disciplinary climate. Our findings show that the more time teachers spend on extracurricular activities, the more students report that the classroom is disciplined.“
OECD (Hrsg.), Teaching in Focus 39 (April 2021), S. 4.

An effective way to improve the disciplinary climate ...

„Teachers’ involvement in extracurricular activities with their students might be an effective way to improve the disciplinary climate. Time spent with students outside of the regular classroom hours can be particularly positive for establishing and nurturing good relationships with students, which, in turn, are conducive of good conditions for students’ cognitive and social-emotional development.“
OECD, Positive, High‑achieving Students (2021), S. 27.

Students who were enrolled in schools that offer more creative extracurricular activities ...

„Students who were enrolled in schools that offer more creative extracurricular activities (including music and art activities) performed better in reading, on average across OECD countries (by 4 score points) and in 32 countries and economies, after accounting for students’ and schools’ socio-economic profile. […] Countries and economies whose schools offer more creative extracurricular activities tended to show greater equity in student performance.“

Additional lessons on curricular subjects ...

„Offering additional lessons on curricular subjects after regular hours at school is a common practice across PISA-participating countries and economies. These activities typically aim to reinforce or enrich instruction and learning that has taken place during regular school hours.“

Well-designed after-school programmes can make a considerable contribution to the educational and social development of young people ...

„Well-designed after-school programmes can make a considerable contribution to the educational and social development of young people, and to staying on in school. Attractive opportunities for young people to engage in sports, learn a musical instrument or get involved in handicraft and other practical activities can help build social and professional skills, while countering the risk of isolation. Empirical evidence confirms the positive effects of extracurricular activities on schooling outcomes and career prospects.“

In England, the pupil teacher ratio in the state sector was 17:1 in 2016 compared to 8.6:1 in the private sector ...

„In England, the pupil teacher ratio in the state sector was 17:1 in 2016 compared to 8.6:1 in the private sector. In practice this means children receive more individual attention, more pastoral support and smaller class sizes. Children from independent schools also typically enjoy a wider range of extra-curricular opportunities than those educated in the state sector. Attending an independent school brings disproportionate privileges in terms of exam results, prestige of position in the labour market, and income.“

Better school climate where the number of extracurricular activities is higher ...

The relationship between extracurricular activity involvement and substance use ...

„The relationship between extracurricular activity involvement and substance use generally appears to be negative (less substance use) even during a time in development when substance use tends to increase, except for the case of athletic participation.“
