Homework can add much to a child's development, but we also acknowledge the important role of play and free time in a child's growth and development. We increase the homework that we give the children as they move through the school, however, we try to ensure that there is always a work/play balance.
We set a variety of homework activities.
- Encouraging the child to read by giving them books to take home.
- Asking children to collect things from home.
- Encouraging the child to research a topic further.
- In Key Stage 2 we continue to give children topics to research, but we expect them to carry out the tasks independently.
If parents have any problems or questions about homework, they should, in the first instance, contact the child's class teacher. If they wish to make a complaint about the school homework policy or the way it is implemented, parents should contact the governing body.
