Please find our homework timetable below.

Most of the homework set is nothing new and is used to reinforce and embed the learning that has already taken place in school. Homework is used to improve fluency and increase rapid recall of fundamental key skills. We recognise that homework is repetitive, but this is to allow the children, with the support of their parents, to understand what is expected and where possible, access it independently.

All homework is set via our online learning platforms (Tapestry & Showbie), except for Phonics & Spelling from Nursery to Year 2.
