Homework

Homework Expectations across the School

Learning at home is an essential part of good education.

Regular homework is important as it gives children the opportunity to practice at home the tasks covered in class and helps children work towards improving important skills. It also helps children to become confident and independent in their learning, which will help throughout their time at school and in adult life.
