Homework at Easingwold Primary School
We see homework as a significant contributor to stronger academic outcomes. Being responsible for their own time management and independent work is also useful in preparing children for the demands of Key Stage 3.
All children from Year 1 - Year 6 receive homework every Friday and this is due to be returned on Wednesday morning.
Homework is marked and returned to the children by Friday. The marking of the homework provides invaluable information to the teacher as to how confident the child is at tackling concepts independently. The information derived from the homework is used to inform next steps in learning.
What if my child struggles with homework?
All homework is differentiated to meet the needs of the individual children and so everyone should be able to complete their work independently at home. If you are finding homework a challenge, please do not worry. We offer a Homework Club every Wednesday so that your son/daughter can be supported in the work that has been set. If homework continues to be problematic then please speak with us. We are happy to make reasonable adjustments where a genuine barrier to learning exists. These are made on a case by case basis.
How can I communicate with the teacher?
If you wish to raise something this can be done in writing, in the homework book so that the teacher sees this. Alternatively, you can jot down some points in the Reading Record as these are also seen by the teacher. Please do not forget that you can also telephone, email or pop in and speak with a member of staff too.
