Homework

Home learning

We view home learning as a partnership between the child, home and school.

We aim for home learning to:

  • Extend the child’s learning
  • Keep families informed of the child’s studies and progress
  • Promote the involvement of families working with their own children.
  • Develop self-discipline skills for life long learning.

     

    Homework at Watermill is often an individual aspect of the curriculum being personal to the teacher and pupil. As our pupil’s work is differentiated in class, so must their homework be differentiated. This can create an extensive burden for staff. Therefore it is understood that homework is more targeted to pupils needs but because of this it may be more infrequent. Class homework’s are rarely set.

    Factors that might affect the setting of homework may include:

  • The home support a pupil may receive with homework
  • Sibling or peer pressure that may be exerted on pupils with homework.
  • Parental preference is taken into account both for and against homework.

    Pupils may choose to use their pupil diaries to record homework.

Please contact your childs teacher directly if you have any concerns over homework. This might include asking for more or less homework. We are always happy to discuss this with you.
