We appreciate the importance of home and school links and the need for parents and teachers to work together to ensure a good education for the children. It is for this reason that we set regular homework in school, although the homework set will vary according to the key stage and ability of the child. The over-riding principle is that children benefit if they have parental support in their learning.

During this academic year we will be trialing a new method of homework to engage pupils during our after school club, lunch time club or when they get home.

 

Format of homework:

Homework tasks can be given in many different forms see the table below and may be differentiated to reflect the individual needs of the children in the class.

Set homework will allow the pupils to use different skills and techniques from the subjects that they are taught in school. This will hopefully engage the pupils with learning at home and provide them with some fun experiences that they can share with parents or carers at home.

 

Homework is given on a regular basis throughout the school following the schedule below.   The homework calendar 2018/2019 is available to download here.
