Aim The aim of this policy is to ensure a whole school consistent approach to homework and to make homework manageable for all concerned. As the primary educators of their children, parents are encouraged to support and reinforce the shared expectations of school. Learning is a shared responsibility between children, parents and staff. In primary school the purpose of homework changes as children get older. Reading is a vital skill in all areas of primary education and lies at the heart of our curriculum. Children, who experience regular reading at home, benefit from improved confidence, self-esteem and increased general knowledge. Your support with reading at home is truly appreciated and greatly valued. Please allow time for your child to enjoy reading to you and discussing their understanding of the text. The government recommends daily reading with your child stating that ‘parents who engage their children in books prepare them to become committed and enthusiastic readers.’ Children, who struggle to read, struggle to access the rest of the curriculum.
