We place great value on purposeful homework and we advise parents to encourage and support their children to develop this daily routine.
Homework is an independent learning activity which contributes greatly to the progress your child makes in their learning. The ability to work independently is a crucial part of the learning process and a key life skill.
Homework will be set which is related closely to the current lessons content your child is studying. It will either practice skills they are learning or it will require them to learn and recall specific subject knowledge.
Pupils will have a planner in which their homework is recorded. This supports them to plan to meet deadlines and develops good habits for out-of-school learning. The planner also allows parent/carers to support their child by monitoring homework set. Homework is also recorded on the ClassCharts app, which pupils and parents can always access from computers and mobile devices.
As pupils progress through the school the demands of homework set will increase. The Learning Resource Centre will be available during lunch, break and after school for those pupils who wish to use it. Here they will have access to the Internet, a range of books for research and a member of staff for support.
