Homework

Homework is set across the school in order to:

  • Promote positive attitudes to work
  • Raise achievement of all pupils
  • Consolidate and reinforce skills and understanding in literacy and Numeracy and across the curriculum
  • Encourage and develop independent learning
  • Increase self-discipline
  • Develop the home/school partnership
  • Prepare children for secondary transfer in Year 6.


A variety of types of homework are used depending on the age and ability of the pupils. These include:

  • Reading
  • Learning spellings, multiplication tables, and mental arithmetic tasks
  • Completion of class work
  • A piece of research on a familiar or a new topic
  • Revision for a test
  • A piece of Numeracy, science or literacy work
  • Other work agreed with parents.

A timetable providing information on when and how often homework will be set is sent out on a termly basis to parents. We also operate a Homework Club where support will be provided for children who may find it difficult to complete homework at home.
