Helping Your Child At Home

Helping your child to complete their their homework is a valuable way for you to support your child's learning, see the progress they are making and celebrate their successes.

Homework is sent home every Friday and is due back to school on the following Wednesday. All pupils are expected to complete any homework set.

Click here to see the detailed homework schedule for all year groups; it shows you what homework your child should be receiving and completing each week. You can read more about the purpose of homework here.

We understand that sometimes it is difficult to complete homework at home for a variety of reasons. To support children and parents in this, Homework Help clubs take place in school every week:

Monday lunchtimes  = Y5&6 with Miss Millward and Y3&4 with Miss Marks

Monday afterschool = Y5&6 with Mrs Timbrell and Y3&4 with Mr Patrick
