We encourage parents to take an interest in their child's work on a regular basis. All of our children are encouraged to take work home on a weekly basis at an appropriate level for them as learners.
Parents are encouraged to hear their child read on a daily basis. Accordingly, all children have a reading scheme book to take home along with a library book.
A homework time table is sent home to parents at the start of each academic year together with homework or reading diary. Parent / carers are also given a summary of learning for the forthcoming term / half term to enable the schools curriculum to be complimented at home.
Whilst homework is a voluntary activity, we do see it use as contributing to the schools aims, including the encouragement of home school links.
