Homework has never been compulsory and can be an area of stress and upset for children at home. After consultation with parents and carers we have changed the way we approach homework in school. We will no longer send home weekly homework, however we still ask you to support your child’s learning at home by:
We will also send out an overview of what your child’s class will be studying this term (this is also available here via links below). This will allow you to support them through research and discussion at home.
Children will also still have access to Education City if they wish to use this at home and teachers will ensure that modules are pupil appropriate.
The exceptions to this will be our Year Six pupils who will continue to receive additional SATs preparation materials, although they will also have a chance to attend a Homework club during the school day. Also, there will be no changes in how the EYC support learning at home.
We will review this in the Summer term, however, should you have any questions before then please feel free to ask the class teacher or me.
