Homework in Primary

Children are often required to complete work at home.

This may range from a few pages of a reading book in the junior classes, to set assignments or completion of work in the senior grades. Homework tasks are chosen to suit the abilities of individual students. Regular spelling practice, maths revision and times tables practice will be of benefit to students. The following are times suggested Homework times.

We believe weekends are important family times and no or minimal homework is expected.
