SCHOOL INFORMATION

10.HOMEWORK

 

Homework tasks are set for pupils at St. Stephen’s with the purpose of supporting ongoing progress and achievement of all pupils.

WE VIEW THE PURPOSE OF HOMEWORK AS:

  • Developing the home school partnership.

 

  • Consolidating and reinforcing skills and understanding.

 

  • Exploiting resources for learning in the home.

 

  • Developing skills of organisation and self-discipline.

 

  •  Preparing pupils for the demands of secondary education.

 

  • Extending school learning.

 

Pupils are given a weekly homework sheet that lists their daily tasks. Parents should support their child with their homework where needed and ensure that they have completed the given tasks.

Children should only spend the allocated time on homework tasks.

We will ask your child to complete homework and learning at home, and so there are a few items that would be useful to keep around the house. The basics include pencils, a ruler, colouring pencils and a sharpener; also it can be handy to invest in a glue stick, scissors and colouring pens as well for those hands-on projects and a handwriting pen for children in KS2.
