Research findings show that regular homework, done in a positive climate at home, will support and enhance your child’s educational progress. Getting involved with your child’s schoolwork is a wonderful way for you to bond and it is important that your child knows you value and support their work at school.

Teachers may set homework for their classes in increasing amounts as they progress through primary school.

Our school strongly encourages your child to engage in some reading activity every night. In the very early years, this may be listening to you read or discussing storybooks with you. As they become more competent you can support your child by visiting your local library and helping them choose books they enjoy reading.
