We believe that home learning plays a vital part in a child’s education and is an integral aspect of the partnership between home and school.
Every class has a programme of home learning which the children are expected to complete under parental supervision and, more importantly, with their help and encouragement. We see it as a vital part of consolidating the children’s learning. We value the regular contact with parents that results from communication about home learning. At the beginning of each term, all parents receive a letter giving the home learning schedule and the topics to be covered during the term.
The following is an agreed minimum expectation of homework throughout the school.
