You will have noticed that requirements for homework are currently changing. The reasons behind this are so that we have a consistent amount of homework in each year group. Parent Forum looked at the document in November and were generally happy that we were looking to make our expectations clearer.
The policy has not been finalised yet so it is still in draft form. It will go to governors for final approval in the next few weeks. I will share it with you next week once the staff and I have discussed it in more detail.
One of the questions asked was about the different levels of expectation within a class. Different pupils have different abilities so teachers will reflect this by varying the level of challenge.
This update also reflects the level of challenge reflected in the new curriculum for each child. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me. More information will follow soon.
