We know that pupils learn best when they practise. It helps them gain competence and helps them to improve. Even when pupils have mastered something, practising still has benefits: it reinforces the basic skills that they need to learn more advanced skills, it protects against forgetting and practice helps them to apply their knowledge and skills in different ways. Because of this, we expect all pupils to complete weekly homework.
Homework tasks are sent by email to parents once a week. Each year group has a different homework set, and day due, which can be seen in our policy. The homework is designed to help pupils to practise while respecting family time. We do not set big art projects that require lots of time and resources, or long writing tasks.
