We feel it is important that children develop a sense of responsibility for their own learning. This is a skill that they will need in adult life. In preparation for the future and to reinforce the work of the classroom we have a graded homework programme. In addition to learning spellings, times tables, reading at home and handwriting practice, the demands of homework increase as pupils mature. Parental support in creating conditions suitable for study is vital if pupils are to benefit from this extension of classroom activities.
