At St. Felix School we recognise the responsibility for a child’s educational development is a shared one. Parental involvement makes a big difference from the very earliest stage. We are committed to the value of home-school partnership.

Homework should never be too onerous nor should it ever create stress within the pupil’s family. It isn’t just some joyless pursuit of knowledge. It’s an integral part of learning. If parents have any concerns they should not hesitate to contact the school. Normally, one week will be allowed for the completion of a homework task, except where daily practice is to be encouraged e.g. reading, spelling and times tables.

In the early years parents can support their child’s development through storytelling, singing or reading together.

Holiday homework in Y2 and Y6 may be given to support those parents who wish to use the time in this way. It is a suggestion not a requirement.

Homework Help clubs are available at lunchtimes if pupils make teachers aware they need help with homework well in advance of the due date
