At Whitemoor Academy we view homework as an essential element of children’s primary school education. It enables them to further consolidate their learning at home by extending what they have learned at school. Furthermore, it enables pupils to deepen their understanding of the learning that has taken place at school to ensure that they are secure in their learning of key concepts. Completing homework enables pupils to make good progress in their learning. It also helps to prepare children to become independent learners and manage their own time effectively in preparation for secondary school and beyond.Following parent feedback (through parent forums and surveys), our Homework Policy for the year 2018-19 has been reviewed. Please see the policy below.
