Home Learning Guidance

Homework is an important aspect of education and we are grateful for your part in helping your child understand this and for giving appropriate help in the way it is managed.

We strongly encourage that all children are given the opportunity to read with, to, or under the supervision of, an interested and supportive adult as part of their daily homework. Even 5 minutes daily can make a massive difference to a child’s progress in reading.

Children are issued with Mathematics, English and Spellings homework on a Monday: this is due in on Fridays, and spellings are also tested on Fridays.

Children are given several days to complete homework tasks in recognition that other outside school activities play important parts in their lives. An extended time for completion helps a child develop skills of time management and responsibility.

Occasionally, children may be given additional, topic related homework projects to complete. Such tasks are usually given a longer timeframe and may be written or design based. The children usually enjoy these projects immensely, and we always enjoy seeing the results of their hard work.

If you have any questions regarding home learning, please see your child’s classteacher in the first instance. Alternatively, please read our home learning policy below:
