Homework/Home Learning

Homework can be any work or activity which pupils are asked to do either on their own or with parents/carers outside of classroom time. Parental involvement and support helps children to develop the skills of independent working.


Purposes of Home Activity


  • To consolidate and reinforce skills and understanding, particularly in English and Maths.
  • To provide opportunities for parents/carers and pupils to enjoy learning experiences together.
  • To extend and embed learning in school.
  • To encourage pupils to develop confidence and self-discipline in preparation for secondary school.
