Home Learning (Homework)
We place our children at the centre of our school and seek to develop the whole child – spiritually, morally, culturally and academically so they are well prepared to meet future challenges.
As a catholic primary school, we believe parents are the first educators of their children. We also believe that a strong home, school, parish partnership is fundamental to the development of children. Pupils whose parents are involved with their education make better progress throughout their school life. Home learning encourages parents to work with their children as well as in partnership with the school.
Parents will be informed at the start of each year of the homework children will be expected to complete. Any homework which is set will be initiated and followed up by the class teacher.
A home school challenge will be set by teachers approximately half termly. This is aimed at developing independence, curiosity and resilience by giving children choices about, and ownership of, their learning.
Parents are asked to support the school by helping their child finish the work. However, space will be left for the important home activities such as sports, music and drama which also form part of a well-rounded education.
