Homework

Guidelines for parents

Homework is an important aspect of education at St Paul's, and we are grateful for your part in helping your child understand this, and for giving appropriate help in the way it is managed.

The homework set will be geared to the individual needs of the child, and we recognise that there will be differing home circumstances. Your guidance, though, is vital and we ask that a suitable place for work at home be provided.

Children are given several days to complete homework tasks, in recognition that other outside school activities play important parts in their lives. An extended time for completion helps a child develop skills of time-management and responsibility.

Should you feel that you would like to comment in any way regarding tasks set, or if there seems to be a mismatch of timing in the completion of them, which is causing concern, please mention it to the class teacher personally.
