Home learning is an extension of the work in school and it supports and reflects our creative curriculum, providing opportunities for parents/carers to become more involved in their child’s learning through topic projects.
We believe that homework not only reinforces classroom learning, it also helps children and young people to develop skills and attitudes that they need for successful lifelong learning. It should support the development of independent learning skills, including the habits of enquiry and investigation, and it should help to foster the role of parents as co-educators of their children.
Homework is set throughout the school, tailored to the age and ability of the children.
Following government guidelines, we expect homework to take the following amount of time:
Y1/Y2 1 hour a week
Y3/Y4 1.5 hours per week
Y5/Y6 30 minutes per day
In addition to this, daily reading is recommended for all primary aged children for the following times:-
Foundation Stage& Infants10 minutes daily
Lower Juniors 15 minutes daily
Upper Juniors 20 minutes daily
We hope parents will help their children when homework is set and encourage them to complete it on time. Our Homework Policy is available under the Policy section or on request from the school office.
