Why give homework?
• To provide a link between teacher and parent
• To develop a child’s concentration skills and develop a work ethic
• Homework is meant to be achievable by a child, i.e. it provides an opportunity to practise work already done. It is normally prepared by the teacher in class. However, sometimes with senior classes, some homework is designed to challenge children’s ability and provide opportunities for creativity
• Children are expected to do their homework to the best of their individual ability – no more, no less.
Details of how long a child should spend on homework, expected quality of homework and expected input of parents is detailed in our school homework policy.
