Homework is set regularly. It develops from sharing a book with the youngest pupils to more
formal tasks as children move through the school.We believe that homework supports and reinforces the home-school partnership, and when setting it,we seek to ensure that:
- It is relevant and supports the work in class;
- The amount set is reasonable;
- Marking, checking and appropriate feedback is prompt.
- Parents/carers can support their children enormously in the successful completion of homework by:
- Making sure you know when homework is set and when it is expected to be returned;
- Finding a quiet place for children to do their homework;
- Helping with homework;
- Ensuring that homework is completed and handed in on time;
- Discuss your child’s homework with them, praising your child’s effort regularly.
A copy of the school’s homework policy is available from the school office. A variety of types of homework are used depending on the age and ability of the pupils. These include
- Learning spelling, multiplication tables and mentalarithmetic tasks
- Completion of class work
- A piece of research on a new or familiar topic
- Revision for a test
- A piece of Mathematics, English or Science work If you need any advice about homework set, do not hesitate to speak to the class teacher who will be pleased to help.
