There are currently two homework clubs in operation in the school, i.e. a homework club run by the school and one run by the CLDC.
The school homework club runs 3 days per week and the CLDC homework club runs 2 days per week.
Children from Senior Infants & First, who qualify under DEIS guidelines, School Completion Programme profiling and on the recommendation of teachers are offered places at the start of each academic year. A pupil waiting list is also drawn up in the case of excessive numbers and is consulted if a place arises.
Children are provided with a healthy snack and are supported with their homework by teachers. Any homework that is not completed will be noted and must be completed at home. If children finish homework early, fun activities will be provided until home time.
Homework Club is an enjoyable and worthwhile experience for all children, and to aid this, some rules will be drawn up, in conjunction with the children, at the start of the school year. They will operate in conjunction with our school’s code of behaviour, where positive behaviour is recognised and rewarded. These rules will encourage respect, politeness, kindness, honesty, gentleness, sharing and listening.
When a child is offered a place in the Homework Club, parents must sign a Homework Club agreement form which outlines details of how the club operates and behavioural expectations and the duration of each session & collection time.
