Policy Statement: We believe homework consolidates and reinforces skills and understanding in numeracy, literacy and other curriculum areas, helps raise the level of achievement of individual pupils, provides opportunities for parents and children to work together and, thereby, fosters an effective partnership between home and school.
We value the support of parents/carers and we believe that this policy will be successful if there is a strong partnership between home and school which is reflected in the Home-School Agreement.
We recognise that all children need leisure time and hope that our policy reflects a balance so children can extend and consolidate their learning with parental support while still allowing ‘down time.’
Topic based activities will be set by class teachers at the start of each half term linking to the whole school theme. This will be included on topic webs. Children will be expected to choose and complete 1 of 3 tasks by the penultimate week of the term, allowing all homework to then be showcased and celebrated by all classes and parents in the last week of the term.
At times, pupils who require particular practise or extra support with an area of work e.g. handwriting, may have additional tasks set as homework.
Yorkley School offers a homework club every week to support children in years 2-6.
