"Achieving Success by Learning Together"

Homework Policy

The Governors and staff of Paddocks Primary school believe that homework is an important aspect of a child’s education.  We believe it encourages children to realise that learning can take place outside the classroom as well as promoting independent learning thus encouraging the child to take great responsibility for their personal progress.  Homework allows parents, carers and the school, to work in partnership for the benefit of their child.

This policy is based on current government guidelines which emphasise the importance of homework and how it helps your child to learn.  The guidelines include how much time pupils might reasonably be expected to spend on homework.  While most parents do appreciate the value and importance of this homework, a few feel that we do not set enough whilst others feel there is too much!  The amount and type of homework we set is at a level which we believe to be reasonable and manageable as well as in line with the guidance provided.
