Homework is set across the school. In setting homework we aim to:

  • Promote positive attitudes to work and school.
  • Raise achievement of all pupils.
  • Consolidate and reinforce skills and understanding in literacy and numeracy and across the curriculum.
  • Encourage and develop independent learning.
  • Develop the home/school partnership.
  • Prepare children for secondary transfer in Year 6.


A variety of types of homework are used depending on the age and ability of the pupils. These may include:-

  • Reading.
  • Learning spellings, multiplication tables, and mental arithmetic tasks.
  • Completion of class work.
  • A piece of research on a familiar or a new topic.
  • A piece of Mathematics, Science or English work.
  • Other work agreed with parents.
