Homework club offers free after-school help to children

A homework club is offering free after school help to children aged between 7 and 16.

The club is run at the Influence Church in Richmond between 4pm and 6pm on a Thursday during school term time.

It is run by Jemma Holliday, who has had ten years of teaching experience.

This story continues after the adverts:


She said: “There are many things that can impact children’s ability to do their homework – organisation, lack of resources, time and other personal and social issues.

“Homework club aims to change that. We  provide a safe place for children to not only complete homework, but to learn about time management, get help with things like spellings and times tables (which so many find hard) and be mentored by a fab team of leaders who care about them.”

The club is run alongside the church’s Storehouse food bank and job club facilities, although parents and carers do not need to access these facilities for their children to come to homework club.

There will also be special SATS blast booster sessions for KS2 children coming soon.

Primary age children need to be signed in and out by an adult.

Secondary age children can sign in and out themselves, with parental permission.

Homework Club runs between 4pm and 6pm (last entry 5.30pm), every Thursday in term time.
