Homework Policy

We believe that homework supports the work children are doing in school through:


  • developing an effective partnership between the school, parents and carers in developing an enthusiasm for learning;
  • consolidating and reinforcing skills and understanding of skills learned in school, particularly, in Literacy and Numeracy;
  • encouraging pupils, as they get older, to develop the confidence and self-discipline needed to study on their own.


Homework should can be as simple as playing simple games and phonics activities & later progresses on to learning spellings and number facts and, of course, reading together, it is vital to provide opportunities for young children to talk about what they are learning with an interested adult and to practise key skills in a supportive environment.


As children get older homework can be used to develop skills of independent learning, and this should increasingly become one of its main purposes, in order to prepare children for secondary school, alongside consolidating school based learning.
