We regard parental support as invaluable, particularly when it comes to learning outside the classroom. Having high expectations of your children when it comes to the completion of homework is a key step in our joint aim to develop independent and resilient life-long learners. 


Your child will recieve homework every week as soon as they begin full time school. The task given will alternate each week between a literacy and maths focus. As children reach Mountain and Sky Phase they will also be given spelling words to learn too. We have listened to parental feedback and provided each child with a physical homework book in which they can complete their work, however there are also online tasks set weekly on Mathletics and Reading Eggs too.


We realise that family life is busy and that sometimes completing homework is not always possible. However, setting side a time each week to work with your child will give you an invaluable insight into what they are learning in school and any successes or struggles they may be experiencing academically. We encourage all parents at the very least to read with their child for ten minutes a few times a week. The more words they read and understand, the better their vocabulary, spelling and written work will become.


Here are our top homework tips:


  1. Check your child's homework book every week and assist your child with planning and organising the completion of their homework
  2. Provide your child with a suitable learning environment in which to complete their homework-a clear space with no distractions is best
  3. Look at your child's homework book and support them by helping them to act on any comments or next steps given 
  4. Make comments yourself in the book about how your child found the task and their attitude to learning, if your child is old enough encourage them to self-assess their work


The basics really do matter!

Fostering a love of reading and practicing mental maths skills such as times tables will benefit your child in making progress throughout primary school.
