Expectations and Feedback

All homework given reflects work covered in class and the needs and abilities of the children. It is expected that homework be completed to the best of each child’s ability. Feedback will be given to pupils, as appropriate.

 

Each term class teachers will inform parents about particular homework expectations for that term. The format of the homework (in books, on worksheets) will be at the discretion of the teacher.

 

Spellings and homework are differentiated according to ability, ensuring that pupils with English as an additional language and pupils with special needs are given work appropriate to their ability.

 

Homework should be completed by all children and in Years 5 & 6 is compulsory.
