KS2:

Homework in KS2 is an important extension to your child's education in Years 5 and 6. All pupils will be given regular homework in the core subjects of English (to include daily reading) and Maths. The homework set, will vary in amount, but it is expected that an average of 30/45 minutes will be spent on each subject. This might, of course, be longer for pupils who take more time or for those who might want to do more.

Pupils may also be given spellings and multiplication tables to learn. Homework in other subjects will not be set every week, but some tasks will be set as appropriate, as explained in the Homework Policy. During periods of testing and report writing, pupils may receive less homework.

Every pupil is issued with a Homework Diary in which they record all tasks to be undertaken, their achievements, awards, house points, messages and other items of information. The diary also acts as an important means of communication between school and home. You are very welcome to make comments or communicate information to us through the diary. We welcome your support with homework and it will be greatly appreciated if you could help and encourage your child to complete their tasks on time. We would also be grateful if you could check and sign your child's Homework Diary every week.

If there is a valid reason for homework not being completed on time, through illness or other reasons, please put a note in the diary stating the reason.
