Homework

We believe that homework can play an important part in the education of children ...

...and an overwhelming number of our parents are in favour of their children having homework. We also recognise that homework is a voluntary activity and in order for it to work we rely completely on parental support.

We accept fully that parents with more than one child may not be able to spend as much time with each child on homework tasks such as reading as we suggest. Such time as may be given is much appreciated but is completely at parental discretion.

Our homework policy recognises that family life comes before homework and families have different lifestyles. Many children have evening or weekend activities and time to relax is also important. The homework we set will help each child's education but not at the expense of family life.

If you have any questions, suggestions or concerns, do please speak to your child's teacher, the headteacher or email the school.

Our current homework guidelines are set out here.
