Homework

We set weekly challenges for each class. Please see the homework timetables below for further details.

  • Homework gives parents/carers a chance to see what their child is learning in school.
  • Homework teaches pupils how to take responsibility for their part in the educational process.
  • Homework teaches pupils about time management.
  • Homework teaches pupils how to work independently.

If infant children are unable to access the internet at home, the ICT suite is open every morning from 8.45-9am.

There are also homework help clubs, run by teachers for the junior children at lunchtimes on Tuesdays and Thursdays in the ICT suite.
