Children throughout the school are encouraged to continue their learning at home in a variety of ways, including taking reading books home, learning spelling lists, completing set literacy and maths tasks and researching different topics.
Some homework, especially in the younger classes, is set with the intention that it is completed with the guidance of a parent and other homework is intended to be completed by the child independently. However, all homework is most effective when supported by parental encouragement and supervision. As the homework set is intended to reinforce and support work that the child has completed or is about to attempt in class, this is one of the most effective and easiest ways a parent can directly help their child at school.
We expect that all children will attempt the homework set and expect it to be handed in inside the deadline given. School staff are always happy to meet with parents to discuss the best ways to support children’s learning at home.
