Our Curriculum - why we teach what we teach



We aim to foster a positive attitude towards homework and help set good habits for Secondary School.  We ensure that homework is of interest to the children and matched to their ability. Our school policy on homework is based on the notion that the learning process does not begin and end at school.  We believe that children are learning constantly from a variety of adults and experiences.  We ask that parents support their child with any homework given.


Homework is set throughout the school in accordance with DfE guidelines. Homework routines begin in Reception with the expectation that children read at home every night.  From Year 1 onwards, children are also given weekly maths and literacy activities. Homework is handed out on a Friday and expected to be returned to school by Wednesday each week.
