All pupils are given a Planner at the start of the year and are expected to take it to all lessons. The Planner is an important aid to personal organisation.
Amongst other things it contains a homework timetable. Please note that Year 6 pupils in the run up to SATS are only given Maths and English homework. Pupils are expected to do homework in order to reinforce work done in school and to build the habit of planned, individual study. This become progressively more demanding as the children proceed through school.
Pupils are expected to record important dates, achievements in and out of school, things to remember, and instructions for homework in their Planner. Parents are asked to look at the Planner and the way it is being used, to discuss the contents with their child and sign it each week. Also preferably to provide their children with a space free from distraction in which to complete their homework.
Form Tutors also check and sign the planners on a weekly basis. If pupils do not complete homework on time or to the teacher’s satisfaction, this will be recorded on Class Charts. If pupils fail to complete three pieces of homework in any half term without good reason they will be placed on an after-school detention.If there are any problems with homework, please contact the subject teacher in the first instance to discuss them.
