Will my child get homework?

We strongly believe in the value of parents supporting children’s learning and encourage you to help your child with their homework. The amount and type of homework your child will receive will vary depending on what they are studying and which year group they are in.

However we also value the extra activities that children become involved with outside school, we do not therefore over burden children with unnecessary homework.

Initially homework tends to be reading and spellings moving through times tables and finding things out to more formal tasks as your child progresses through the school. Teachers will send homework timetables home at the beginning of each term letting you know what to expect.
