Ickleford Primary

Homework Policy

The aim of our homework policy is to promote lifelong learning beyond the school day. We believe that homework consolidates classroom learning; helps children to develop skills and attitudes; develops independent learning skills; embeds the habits of enquiry and investigation; and it fosters the role of parents or carers as active partners in their children’s learning.

We will make every effort to combat disadvantage, by considering the needs of those children whose access to resources and home support are limited including closely supervised Homework Club for Upper KS2.

Within the policy below are the main objectives, the roles and responsibilities of headteacher, teacher, parent and pupil, along with the types of work that may be given and the time frames for those activities.
