Homework Policy

We believe that homework:

  • Supports the teaching and learning taking place in the classroom

  • Develops co-operation and partnership between school and home

  • Encourages independence

Gives parents an opportunity to:

  • Be involved in their child’s education

  • Show that they value their child’s efforts

  • Praise and encourage their child
