HOMEWORK & REPORTING

HOMEWORK

The school's policy is that homework be given. It is suggested that a greater focus on literacy occurs in the early years. Homework may be modified according to the needs of the children.

Normally teachers will outline their homework procedures at their Parent/Teacher information meeting held in February of each year. Teachers are encouraged to use the homework grid which allows for both compulsory and optional activities as well as valuing the many commitments students have outside the school. Parents are expected to support teachers in their supervision of homework.


Homework is expected to be completed appropriately and at a high standard. It is the teachers' responsibility to ensure homework is marked and returned within an appropriate timeframe. In the event that homework becomes difficult, parents are asked to communicate these difficulties to the class teacher. Homework should be an opportunity to reinforce known concepts, with a particular focus on literacy (in the early years), should difficulties with time occur please let the teachers know. Homework should not be an unpleasant experience for parents or children.
