Homework Policy

The aim of the giving of homework is to encourage responsibility within the child; to fulfil both parents and students expectations; to extend the children’s study life into the home thereby enabling parents to be aware of and involved in the children’s work; to reinforce work done during the day and in areas the children are familiar with; to encourage and develop consistent study habit and independent study skills and to encourage a form of communication between teacher and parents.

Homework is given from Monday to Thursday.


Home work is selected from the following:

  • Reading – should be done by all children each night
