The School’s aims in setting homework are to support and extend pupil’s learning by practising and consolidating skills and knowledge, encouraging independent working and promoting good study habits.

Children are encouraged to read as widely as possible at home and the co-operation of parents in supporting our reading programme is enlisted, not only in the early stages but throughout the child’s school career.

In Key Stage 2 teachers will regularly set progressively increasing amounts of work for learning or completion at home, in support of the English and Mathematics curriculum. The child and parents are encouraged to make this a set time and to ensure that there is a quiet place where this work can be done. Parents are also invited to indicate the amount of support given and the time taken by pupils to complete homework tasks.
