Why a homework club could work for your child

Girl in library

What is a homework club?

Homework clubs offer a place for your child to work in a supportive environment out of school hours.

Why choose a homework club?

Some children are so self-motivated that they’re able to work diligently on homework and ignore the distractions of normal family life, but not everyone finds it so easy.

Learning journey programme

  • Weekly programme for each school year
  • Worksheets sent direct to your inbox
  • Keeps your child's learning on track

Doing homework requires a quiet space to work at home and support from you. If your job or other children make it tricky to provide those things you might want to consider the option of a homework club.

Who runs homework clubs?

Schools and many public libraries offer them, usually after school finishes for the day. Check what’s available with your school and local authority. The biggest advantage of a school-based homework club is that it’s on the same premises, so children don’t have to travel to the club.  Familiarity with teachers is also a plus point, and your child is in an environment where they are already relaxed.

If your child would prefer a change of location at the end of the school day a library homework club might be the answer. They usually run from 4pm to 6.30pm and sometimes for a few hours on a Saturday morning. “We find that children start getting more homework from the age of nine onwards so our clubs are of most benefit for eight to 14-year-olds,” says Lucy Love, manager for children and young people at libraries run by Enfield Council. “Under-eights can come to the club but a parent or carer must be with them.”

What benefits do clubs offer?

“The great thing about library homework clubs are the homework centre assistants – while they don’t do the child’s work, they have the knowledge and experience to guide them to the relevant books or online resources such as encyclopaedias,” explains Lucy. “We encourage children to use online data, as it’s usually the most up-to-date, and can offer equipment such as protractors and SATs papers. Homework clubs are also a great way of helping the child’s transition to secondary school.”

What to do after homework club

  • When you get home, ask your child to explain what their homework is – this will show you they have understood it properly themselves.  
  • Help your child to settle down and concentrate by making sure there are no distractions around them when they go over their homework with you.  
  • Encourage your child to check their work to reinforce the learning they have done.

What Is Homework Club?

Homework club is an after school club for students to complete homework/school work. Students report to a specific classroom and are supervised by a teacher. The teacher will offer assistance and check on students to make sure they are completing school work. The length of homework club will vary by school but usually lasts for about an hour after the school day ends. 

Who Is Homework Club For?

Homework club if for students that struggle to complete school work and homework. 

Students that attend homework club benefit from a quiet place to complete work after school. 

Homework club is usually available to all students but often students with a 504 or an IEP will get first consideration.

In my school we have limited spaces in homework club so it’s up to us, the teachers, to choose students that will benefit from it the most.

If you need a description of what homework is then I answered that in this article .

How Often Is Homework Club?

How often a school has homework club really depends on the school and the district. 

First of all not all schools have the means to offer homework club to students.

Because the teacher that supervises the students in homework club needs to be compensated and some schools don’t have the money to pay them. 

For schools that do have the money to pay a teacher to supervise homework club they may offer homework club every day or only a few days a week. 

The middle school I work at offers our students homework club two days a week. 

Is Homework Club Effective?

Whether or not homework club is effective depends on two things: the teacher supervising and the students. 

If the supervisor engages with the students and sets expectations for work completion then the club can have an impact.  

However, if the supervising teacher is not engaged then the students will not get as much work done. 

In my experiences I have seen homework as beneficial to students but have also had students that attend it and it doesn’t seem to impact their grade or learning at all.

Often the students that are in homework club are students that struggle with work completion and organization.

This is why the teacher that supervises them really needs to have them set daily or weekly goals to ensure that work completion is taking place.

Homework and Homework Club 101

January 8, 2022 by Jill Shafer

of homework club

Hello, friend!  Let’s talk about homework club and what it looks like in our classroom.

I have used THIS with students in grades three through five but, like with anything, tweak it to meet the needs of your kids .

Disclaimer to start: I’m not here to argue for or against homework.  We have a district responsibility and understanding that homework is a component of the day and not to exceed a certain length of time.  For us, it’s ten minutes per grade level so by fifth grade, no student should be spending more than 50 minutes on homework each evening.

I will, obviously, modify homework for students, as well as provide time in class for homework completion.

Homework is never anything new; it is always review and for us, it’s very predictable, which I’ll share below.

For our room, here’s what is assigned:

-Reading Plus (a program used district-wide): Our fifth graders are responsible for completing three SRs and three RA assignments each week.  They can work at their own pace but we HIGHLY encourage doing at least one each evening.  This is OFTEN done in class but takes anywhere from five (the vocabulary assignments) to twenty minutes.

-Language: There is either a brief spelling activity (first semester) or Wordly Wise activity (second semester). This should take about ten minutes.

-Math: Students are assigned 6-10 review problems, which come straight from their workbooks.  This is usually content that was taught in class about a week ago.  We are constantly spiraling to review.  Once a week, students are asked to do only Jiji, another district-wide math program.  They do this in lieu of a workbook page that night.  Regardless, it takes about twenty minutes.

of homework club

Okay!  So with that said, homework is always on our May Do board, meaning that if all their other assignments are completed, they can go ahead and work on their homework.  They may not know the math workbook page that night but they can always do Reading Plus, Jiji, or Wordly Wise.

We fill out our planners every afternoon, right before we clean up to go home (our district provides students in grades three through five with the same planners and I model it every single day under the document camera).

I am well aware that students go home to varying levels of parental support and I do not ever want a child to leave feeling like the homework is unattainable.  I am always available to help, whether that’s checking in after-school or being available before school.

Additionally, math in our room is never graded for correctness.  Student get their point if it was completed and effort was shown.  After our math warm up, we go over answers and students will ask for certain problems to be worked out together.

of homework club

I have homework checkers (two students) that go around during math and star the page if work is shown and the problems are completed.

For Reading Plus, spelling/Wordly Wise, and Jiji (ST Math), I do not check for completion until Friday morning. This gives students an opportunity to practice daily habits (math workbook) with time management throughout the week (reading and vocabulary).

Now, on Friday, if all assignments have been completed, this is where the homework club kicks in.

During soft starts (you can read more about that HERE ), I call students up.  ALL students get called up one by one.  We either go over missing assignments OR they get a punch for their card.

These cards are kept in pencil boxes and treated very seriously.

of homework club

The resource contains so many different options but I like to use these, pictured.  In order to get a punch (I have some fun ones in HERE ), all assignments must be done.

Missing one or two?  It’s okay.  We talk a lot about the reasons why it might have happened, what we can do next time, or how we can reach out for help if needed.

Not all kids get their cards punched every week and that’s okay.

We celebrate homework club every six weeks.  This gives kids a chance to “catch up” if they missed something one week.

Coming to homework club means they have their card with all their punches and they’re ready to celebrate!

Homework club can look a hundred different ways and I try to switch it up so that it stays exciting and motivating.

of homework club

Here are some ideas we’ve done in the past:

-Eat lunch with the teacher

-Muffins/breakfast before school

-Trade your homework club card for a homework pass

-Lunchtime movie or craft (they LOVE the crafts and I’m always looking for inexpensive ideas on Pinterest)

-Board game tournament after school or at lunch

-Special games at recess (I’ll get out THESE things and they’ll play together)

-Popsicles after school

-Trade your homework club card for a small surprise (they love fidgets, puzzle erasers, play dough cans, slime, fun pencils; I have a ton in HERE )

You really can modify it to work for YOU and your class but it’s another little layer of motivation.  It also gives me an opportunity to talk to kids about time management skills.  My kids leave elementary school and head off to middle school, which is a new ballgame with changing classes and having multiple teachers.

So, I try to keep homework doable and relevant, accessible and meaningful.  Homework club is just a little bonus!

Hi Jill! Thanks for the blog on homework. I’ve been wanting to spruce up my program, and I even looked for homework ideas on here last summer. I do similar stuff with math review, spelling, and book talk prep. I do have a question… what kind of planner do you use? I think I’ll start using planners next year, but I wonder if there are really simple, cheap ones out there. Also, have you had kids lose their planners? Right now, we use homework folders, and I have three kids who are always misplacing their folders and needing a new one. Those repeat offenders are working on responsibility and organization 🙂 and they’ll get it eventually. Thanks again for all of the great ideas. I may even implement a homework club soon! Andie

How to Set Up a Homework Club

of homework club

Homework clubs can be a fantastic way for students to get together, help each other, and stay motivated to complete their school assignments. If you’re considering setting up a homework club, here are some steps to guide you through the process.

 Define the Purpose and Goals

Before you start a homework club, it’s important to determine why you’re starting it and what you hope to achieve. Do you want to provide a quiet space for individual study, or are you aiming for collaborative learning where students help each other? Setting clear goals will help guide the structure of your club.

 Choose a Location

A suitable location is critical. This place should be quiet, have enough space, and be easily accessible to students. Libraries, community centers, or empty classrooms are excellent places as they provide a formal atmosphere conducive to studying.

 Set a Schedule

Decide on the days and times that the homework club will meet. It’s important to consider when students are most likely to attend — after school or in the evening. Be consistent with the timing so that students can build it into their routine.

 Gather Materials

Make sure you have all the materials necessary for effective studying: textbooks, reference books, stationary supplies like pens and paper, computers with internet access if possible, printer/scanner facilities, etc.

 Establish Rules and Structure

Creating a set of rules helps to maintain order and focus within the group. For instance, settle on rules regarding noise levels, toy usage during club time (like phones), or bringing snacks. Additionally, decide how the time will be structured—whether there’ll be a quick briefing at the start of each session or if students break off into groups.

 Recruit Members

You’ll need to promote your homework club to gather members. You can do this by creating flyers and posters to advertise around your school or local community centers. You could also use social media or word-of-mouth to get the word out there.

 Find Supervision

Having an adult supervisor like a teacher or parent can help oversee the club activities. This person can provide homework help if needed or mediate any disruptions that arise during study time.

 Secure Funding if Necessary

If you require funds for materials or snacks, look into potential sponsorships from local businesses or educational grants available in your area that support after-school programs.

 Monitor Progress and Solicit Feedback

It’s important to keep track of how well the homework club is meeting its intended goals. Ask for regular feedback from members and adjust your strategies accordingly. This ensures that the club remains effective and continues to meet student needs.

With careful planning and management, a homework club can be an invaluable resource that fosters community support among students as they work towards academic success.

Why Homework Clubs Are Good

math calculator

Kids Enjoy Working in Groups

Pupils figure out how to obtain a feeling of achievement when they’ve complete the tasks they’ve been set. This is something that helps to generate good study habits in students. In these groups, pupils are matched well with their coaches to help them in their weak areas.

Many schools provide homework clubs, but you may, at times, never hear about it. It is always worth asking what’s available as homework clubs are a secure environment where students can get their work done with no distractions. Also, with the advantage of getting aid there in the shape of managers or teachers should they want it.

Conducive Environment

math book

There might be people in the homework club, who may help in a manner that parents might not have the capability to. It’s an environment that’s ideal whenever kids are out of their school environment to be in to perform work.

Provides Extra Motivation

Children feel comfortable and happy being a part of something, such as a homework club. It highlights to students at a young age the value of working hard to find and the importance of homework. But a homework club may be a social place and time where pupils have the chance to grow further in their research in addition to developing their communication abilities.

Homework Clubs

Dolphin and Fatima Homework Clubs are programmes of Rialto Youth Project. As part of a community-based project our work concentrates on Homework Support and Arts-based programmes. We have recognised that while supporting young people, it is essential to assist them in learning six basic skills: following instructions, concentration, listening, checking quality & accuracy, working on your own and working under pressure. We believe that when young people acquire those six basic skills they become more independent within their work and more self-directing within their own lives.

We believe in equality of opportunity for children and young people. We believe in the uniqueness, dignity and equal worth of young people and in their right to access opportunities that enhance their lives. Young people should be treated equally.


We believe in challenging and making a long-term commitment to transforming unjust social conditions through a pragmatic interface with the real politics of change. We are committed to social justice around questions of access to education.


We believe in the value of education. We encourage participation and achievement within the education system to the best of every young person’s ability including progression to college.

You keep us occupied when we could be doing other things. You keep us safe. There’s fun activities and you have the craic with the leaders.   Shannon Redmond Age 11

Definition of Homework Clubs

The primary function of the RYP’s Homework Clubs is to offer homework support. Situated in an area of longstanding and multiple inequality where lack of space and poor living conditions are an issue, the homework clubs are at times the only place a child can complete their homework. Belief in the value of education is key to our work. We work closely with schools and support children in their literacy development by supporting and adopting the literacy strategy developed by the local schools. Building strong and compassionate relationships with young people is at the heart of what we do. The homework clubs are a safe and welcoming space. The clubs place high value on fostering a strong homework routine. A key worker works alongside each young person on homework support while also developing a trusting relationship. The strength of our relationships with young people is evident from their continued voluntary use the service throughout their school lives. The RYP Homework Clubs run Seasonal programmes, which offer fun and creative projects outside school term and are specifically designed with prevention in mind.

Homework Clubs Philosophy

Six basic skills, arts-based practice, community, school & family, information management system, needs assessment, individual approach.

We don’t just support young people in their educational development. We recognise that it is essential to acquire six basic skills: following instructions, concentration, listening skills, working under pressure, working on your own and checking quality & accuracy. We believe that when young people learn these skills they can become more self-directing in their lives.

Education does not only mean formal education. We are also heavily engaged in arts-based practice. We work in collaboration with many artists in dance, visual arts, street arts and music, so that young people can experience arts practice and possibly find their passion and interests. We believe in the arts as play, as education and as a vocation.

An important part of our approach is working with families of young people in conjunction with local schools. The relationship between school, community and family is key to supporting young people through their educational development. We have developed a framework which enables us to work closely with schools in the local area. It is child-focused and allows community and schools to link together on many levels.

We have developed an Information Management System to plan and review our programmes using an outcomes-based model of practice. We also use this tool to record young people’s attendance, participation and basic skill development within programmes. Such information is used to develop individual and group-based plans of action for young people. Plans are recorded and reviewed regularly.

Needs assessments are carried out for all the children attending the Homework Clubs. Based on the individual child’s needs and interests, both in terms of basic skills and social development, we work hard to create a safe and supportive environment where young people can complete their homework and engage in a positive social space with peers and leaders.

We recognise that each child’s needs are different. Some need encouragement and to be given the confidence to work on their own and check their own work. Others may need a quiet space and one-to-one help to build concentration and listening skills. Each child knows what peers they will work with and which leader will help them. This is crucial for building positive, supportive relationships both with peers and adults.

Homework Clubs Five Programme Strands

  • Homework Support: Junior & Senior Infants offers early literacy support and basic skills development through homework, story telling and play;
  • Homework Support: First to Sixth Class offers homework and literacy support, basic skills development and support with transition to secondary school;
  • Homework Support: Secondary Students aims to encourage young people to work independently. We offer grinds and help to develop study skills. We support young people into adulthood;
  • School Holidays: We run dedicated seasonal programmes during school term and during school holidays to coincide with Halloween, Christmas, Easter and the summer;
  • Community School Work encompasses the Principals Network, In Service Training Network and regular visits between school and community;

The work of the RLC in creating a seamless learning environment for young people between home, school and community clearly demonstrates the ‘art of the possible’

The RYP is well placed to promote a young person’s enjoyment of school and a belief in their own abilities, which should impact positively upon improved attendance and educational outcomes.

 The RYP is well placed to influence young peoples enjoyment of school and their belief in their ability to succeed in school. The evident success of fostering relationships and working practices between schools and the community provide a compelling rationale to maintain and further strengthen these connections.

Imaginative Out of School Time Support for 4 to 6 Year Olds

Programme Profile

We create a welcoming space offering a structured programme. Children are encouraged to talk about their day. They are encouraged to look after their own belongings and are given small jobs and tasks. We aim to make homework fun and ask questions through games. Parental involvement is very important. Parents are encouraged to volunteer for different aspects of the programme. Development of oral language is essential at this age therefore the club aims to support and develop these skills through carefully designed activities and storytelling. We encourage every child to be themselves and to dive into their own imagination.


Support school curriculum. Vocabulary, early literacy and numeracy development through storytelling, arts and social interaction and educational play using different stations for board games, pegs, blocks etc. Oral language development through storytelling and dialogue. Active educational games and sports days. Healthy cooking and eating.

Greater ability to share & socialise. Enhanced imaginative capabilities. Ability to create in a range of visual means. Pride in creative capacity. Improved social skills & increased parental involvement.


Our ArtSparks programme uses a Story-based approach. An overarching narrative provides the basis for children to explore the world around them in a creative way. It introduces the child to basic art skills using a broad range of materials, which help develop dexterity and motor skills. ArtSparks is an open and magical space where children’s imaginations are engaged by the wonder of the story. Oral language, literacy and concentration are also developed through ArtSparks.

A Basic Skills Programme for Independent Learning for 6 to 12 Year Olds

We create a welcoming out of school time space where a strong homework routine is established from the start of the school year. Our homework support is based on the conviction that young people find the answers for themselves through developing their basic skills. This is essential in preparing young people to transition into secondary school. We provide them with materials, resources and the support to do this. The social and educational activities after homework are very important to young people as they attend the clubs on a voluntary basis. The clubs also provide a daily healthy meal. This kitchen time fosters positive relationships. Arts-based groups and youth clubs complete the programme.

Homework & educational support; Basic skills development; Literacy support; Reading and Library time; Educational games and activities; Kitchen Time; Arts-based programmes; Sports; Youth clubs; Seasonal programmes;

Welcoming space with routine established. Homework support. Further support of Schools Literacy programme. Further development of the six basic skills.

Up to 2 nd class, children can join the ArtSparks programme. From 3 rd class, children can engage in the RYP’s dedicated Arts Programme which encompasses a wide variety of artforms such as Music, including guitar and keyboard lessons, Street Performance, Dance, and Visual Arts. The RYP Arts Programme offers clear progression for young people, encouraging them to develop a real interest and express themselves creatively.

An Educational Support Programme for 12 to 18 Year Olds

We provide a homework space where young people can work independently. We assist the development of study skills, often providing grinds in the preparation for State exams. We support young people in the move from primary to secondary school, particularly in relation to becoming more independent and organised. We encourage young people to assess Further Education, assisting with college and grant applications, CV writing and study choices. Working with the youth work team of RYP we ensure the smooth transition of young people to youth work programmes, providing opportunities for them to engage in arts, culture, sports and travel. We also encourage young people to become part of the Junior Leadership programme.

Basic skills are applied in homework completion. Successful transition to secondary school. Enhanced preparation for state exams. Successful transition to further education. Participation in youth work programmes & Junior Leadership programmes. Greater sense of creative selves. Young people more self-directing.

Young people engaged in the RYP Art Programmes are encouraged to use the skills they have developed to find their voice and become more self-directing. As well as their creative selves we develop young people’s sense of social justice through issue-based projects. We encourage young people to take greater ownership of creative projects they are engaged in and to consider arts as education and as a vocation.

A Creative School Breaks Programme for 4 to 18 Year Olds

Provision outside the school term is an essential part of our work. Young people expect us to be part of significant events in their lives, for those markers of change in their community as well as seasonal events, which every child looks forward to. Local children are put front and center in the planning and delivery of the Seasonal Programme, further developing positive relationships in a more informal, fun atmosphere. Seasonal Programmes also provide an opportunity for teenagers to see if they are interested in the Junior Leadership programme and provides them with a meaningful alternative for their free time during school holidays. Programmes are consciously planned with prevention in mind. They also bring the community together.

Week long Easter arts programme with grand finale in the grounds of Irish Museum of Modern Art. Four week extensive summer project, with wide range of daily activities & arts programmes as well as regular outings. Halloween & Christmas, older teenagers engaged in the creation of the Haunted House and Christmas Wonderland for younger children and the wider community.

Wide range of creative, fun & safe programmes provided for children & young people during school holidays. Stronger relationships with young people established. Enhanced community spirit. Positive & preventative alternative programmes for young people at key points in the year. Enhanced Leadership Skills among older teenagers.


The Summer Project is an intense, 4-week programme for children aged 4 to 11 years. Our aim is to create a fun, energetic atmosphere, taking young people off to explore nature and experience adventures, as well as sports and arts-based programmes. Volunteers and Junior Leaders make up a key part of the Summer Project, further developing their skills. Parents also come along to join in the fun.

Community/School Strategy

A Programme of Information and Exchange

Over the past few years the RYP Homework Clubs have built strong connections and enhanced relationships with five local schools. A key aspect of this work is the Principal’s Network where principals get to meet each other and identify gaps and strategies in educational practices. The network focuses on community collaboration and educational attainment, with a view to agreeing school and community based activities. In-Service Training supports the development of skills and strategies in the community to successfully complete homework. We also explore ways of supporting literacy development. These structures are complimented by regular visits to and from the schools, which focus on the individual needs of the child.

Principals Network. In Service Training for Homework Club staff delivered by teachers. Meetings with Home School Liaison. Community School Visits. Reading Support Worker in school & Homework Club. Individual support for young person and family within the educational system.

Positive relationships and day to day engagement between schools & Homework Clubs. Increased links between Homework Club project workers & teachers. Greater cohesion & awareness around the needs of young people in home, community & school. Improved information flow. More sustainable communication structures.


The Homework Club leaders regularly visit the schools, staff rooms & classes. Making this connection highly visible reinforces for children that their school & Homework Club are working together. The connection allows us to jointly encourage a child’s hard work & to identify needs early. The aim is to provide a triangle of support around individual young people through home, school & community all working together.

our critics speak!

We get to do homework and play games

I love all the holiday stuff we do at Christmas and Halloween and Summer Project

There’s lots of books and games there and you get all your homework finished and get to spend time with your friends.

Where & When

There is a very significant level of local participation in the Homework Clubs. The majority of children and young people living in Fatima and Dolphin participate in programmes that extend over the school holidays as well as term time. We currently have 213 children and young people registered with both Dolphin and Fatima Homework Clubs, which function from the community centres in Fatima and Dolphin House. Homework Programmes take place from Monday- Thursday from 2-7pm. On each of these days children and young people are welcomed to their group which is a structured programme divided up by school year. There are 4 groups that run each day and each group has between 20-25 children and young people attending regularly. Complementing this, there are different activities and arts-based programmes taking place in the evenings and Fridays. Healthy eating is an important part of the programme. Each team has a kitchen operative who provides all children with a healthy meal and a snack on a daily basis. Kitchen time has become a core part of the homework programme and is very popular with the children – often a first question a child asks is “What food are we getting today?” All the Homework Club programmes are delivered by two core teams of four homework support workers in each location, supplemented by CE workers, students and volunteers. For specific programmes we also work closely with artists, teachers and youth workers.

Value of Education

We believe in the value of education as a core conviction. We believe fundamentally in the right of children and young people to a good education including progression to college. We encourage them to participate and achieve within the education system to the best of their ability. We’re committed to building links between school and community, fostering an ethos of school attendance

A Safe, Welcoming Space

We aspire to provide a safe, friendly and warm drop-in space in the Rialto community where all young people are valued, welcomed and encouraged to express, explore and experience opportunities which are important to them

Non-Judgmental Inclusion

RYP is non-discriminative. We foster an ethos of openness and inclusiveness. Individuals are valued from all walks of life in all their various ways at all stages of their lives. We are committed to having a non-judgmental attitude where young people can come and talk about anything that is on their mind

Supporting Young People to Reach their Full Potential

We are committed to supporting young people to fully explore and follow their dreams and aspirations. This means giving young people the opportunity to find their strengths, interests and talents and to develop them

Spend more time with your friends and it’s better than doing homework at home. The music lessons are cool.

Programme Coordination

The Rialto Youth Project Homework Clubs are coordinated by two Team Leaders. Each Homework Club team consists of a Team Leader and 4 core part time staff and a kitchen operative. Staff also receive support from Community Employment Scheme, Parents, Volunteers and Students on Placements. We have weekly team leader meeting with the RYP manager and the team leader from the youth work team. Here we plan, co-ordinate and discuss the development of the overall direction of the project. We strategically plan for the project within the wider context of youth work and community development. We also have weekly team meeting with the core teams who deliver the Homework Club programme on the ground. At those meetings, programme outcomes and the needs of individual young people are discussed and follow up actions are planned. All these areas of work are monitored within our Information Management System.

Rialto Youth Project, Homework Clubs

Dolphin House and Fatima Homework Clubs are programs of Rialto Youth Project. We are a community-based project which works under 6 areas of development. These include Homework Support/Education, Coaching and Mentoring, Group Work, Arts Work, Sport and Social Programming.
