There has been lots of research into the effectiveness of homework and it is certainly the case that schools whose pupils do homework tend to be more successful. Common homework activities include reading or practising spelling and number facts, but may also include more extended activities to develop inquiry skills or more directed and focused work based on what has been taught in school.

Research has found that effective homework is associated with greater parental involvement and support, therefore our homework is designed to encourage parental engagement. Your feedback on how your child has managed each piece of set work, and the support you offered them, helps us develop a deeper understanding of how your child is progressing.

Below is a guide for the homework your child should be completing.
