In the policy below, we have detailed the expectations for each year group. The aim is to balance independent learning and self-study with a balanced life. Some homework is more formal; other homework is designed to be more family-oriented and to encourage exploration and engagement.
Please remember when helping your child that homework is often specific to what they have been learning in class – as you weren’t in class, you might not understand what has to be done as well as the child does! Therefore, if your child struggles with any of the homework set, please encourage him/her to speak to the class teacher about it initially: if this doesn’t resolve the issue, please speak to the teacher yourself.
