Homework is an essential part of supporting children’s learning. It helps our children to learn and practice key skills at home which then enables them to access the curriculum in greater depth.

Homework should not be too onerous and for that reason our younger children receive more frequent homework which takes them a shorter time to complete.  Our older pupils should be able to concentrate for longer periods of time on their homework.

All children are expected to read for 15 minutes daily at home.
