Changes to Year Six homework

January 20th, 2017

As a staff, we constantly review our practice and reflect upon what is or isn’t going well. We have noted that in our efforts to raise standards,   more homework than usual has been set in recent months for Year Six children. We believe that the balance between learning at home and having free time is important and so, with this in mind, have reviewed current practice regarding homework provision and expectation. We want what is best for our children – for them to achieve whilst being happy and confident – and it is for this reason that changes are afoot. We thank you for your ongoing support.

    I would just like to leave a message to say what an amazing Teacher you have in Mr Moore, he has worked wonders with Anya’s confidence in Maths and brought her on so much.
    He is very approachable for the children and I know will set them up ready for Secendory school.
    A big thank you from me and all other parents that feel the same.

    Echoing Lisa’s comments. It’s amazing how some children want to take extra work voluntarily. In addition, children seem pleased to be asked to go to interventions and after school boosters. It is tricky to get the right balance of children taking responsibility for knowing when homework is due in and getting it done in good time, and being a helicopter parent!

    I’m really pleased to hear that as the amount of homework given over the Christmas holidays caused an awful lot of stress in our house.
