Homework

Homework

Forms I to VI are set homework each day.  At St Philomena’s School we believe homework is an important part of a child’s education.  Pupils are set homework to practise skills and learning completed within school. Sometimes the aim is to repeat learning from class as a practise exercise, at other times, the homework will ask pupils to apply their learning to a new context. Pupils will not be set work to do at home that they have not learned in school.

There is an expectation that all pupils will attempt the homework set and will be supported at home to complete the work to the best of their ability. If appropriate, pupils who access a personalised curriculum within school may be set different homework.

In Forms I to VI, homework is set on a daily basis, with the tasks explained and given out in class. Any late homework will not be marked.

In addition to homework, pupils are encouraged to read every day and practise their times tables every day.
