Learning at home is an essential part of good education. Regular homework is important as it gives pupils the opportunity to practice at home the tasks covered in class, and helps the pupils work towards improving important skills. Homework also helps children and young people to become confident and independent in their learning, which will help throughout their time at school and in adult life.
Aims of our homework policy
· to develop an effective partnership between the school and parents.
· to ensure a consistent and progressive approach to homework across the school.
· to ensure learners, school and parents have a clear understanding about their roles and responsibilities.
· to provide opportunities for parents to support their child to reinforce and revise their learning.
· to encourage learners to develop self discipline and responsibility for their learning as life long learners.
What homework can I expect my child to bring home?
Every child will bring their homework book home on Wednesday to be returned the following Monday morning. Reading, phonics, spellings, or tables may also be sent home during the week. From Year 1 children are expected to complete numeracy and literacy tasks each week. Year 5 & 6 will bring revision tasks towards the end of the year.
At school there will be opportunities for the children to review and discuss their homework. Outstanding homework will be rewarded weekly with an invite to join Friday Cake Club!
