Homework Policy

We do view homework as an important extension of school work and as a useful exercise in self-discipline, particularly as preparation for secondary education. Children are encouraged to take school books home to read and the homework for Reception, Year 1, Year 2 and Year 3 will be located in the reading folder. Homework for Years 4, 5 and 6 will be sent home in a personal homework folder and should be returned to school when work is completed. I have listed below the kinds of activities, together with an approximate timetable, with which we would hope to engage your assistance in ensuring that children do gain maximum benefit from their homework programme. I hope that this will be useful for you.
