New Service: ARC’s Bright Sparks – Homework & Activity Club

The overall aim of the Homework and Activity Club Project is to raise educational aspirations of the young people from Sallyswood & Castle Street, the areas immediately surrounding the ARC.

The Homework/Activity Club aims to:

  •  Give children a sense of self-value/self-worth.
  •  Enable the children  to experience success through activity.
  •  Assist the children to develop relationships with others through mutual trust and support.
  •  Develop responsibility for self and others through organised activities.

In addition to providing a space for the children to complete their homework the project offers the children access to materials and IT resources including mathletics.

The Homework/Activities Club provides a relaxed atmosphere where the children are able to complete their homework and ask questions that they may not feel comfortable doing at school.  It is a welcoming and fun environment but we do have strict policies which the children must sign up to.

The service is free for Primary School Children and will operate 2 days per week Tuesday and Wednesday and will run from 3.15 to 4.45pm

The Homework/Activities Club is run by experienced, trained and fully vetted childcare staff.
