Homework Policy

Parents should check the children’s homework each day and sign the homework journal

Homework will not be issued to children who are absent through illness or on holidays.

Homework is given each night in all classes from Monday to Thursday. Homework is not given on Fridays.

Homework for classes first to sixth is recorded in a homework journal.

If a child’s birthday coincides with a homework day the child will not have any homework that night.

Homework is an important link between the school and the home. For the last week of each term homework will only consist of oral or reading work.

Learning Support / Resource homework will take precedence over homework issued by the class teacher.
