Guidelines and procedures

Parents and teacher’s beliefs about the value of homework both differ and intersect.

 The majority of our school community believe homework to be a worthwhile activity for the following reasons. It can:

  •  provide quality time for parents to interact with their children
limit the amount of time children spend watching television or playing video or computer games
  • encourage parents or carers to talk with their child about their school work
  • give parents and opportunity to see what their children are doing in class and to see how they are progressing
  • communicate with parents about what their child is doing in class at the time 

  • assist students to practise skills learnt in class 
reinforce work learnt in class 

  • assist students to revise content covered in class 
assist students to develop independent study skills 
develop self-discipline in children
  • assist students to develop time management/organisational skills
allow time to finish work not completed by students during class

Some parents feel very strongly that homework should not be set by the school. This policy allows those parents to decline to participate in the class homework program. A notation of this request will be made on the student’s file.

Providing work for your child during absence from school.

Class teachers do not provide work for students going on holidays during term time. You may wish to talk to your class teacher about accessing our online learning sites such as Reading Eggs and Mathletics. Alternatively here is a Travel Pack.pdf which you can print off and complete with your child while you are away.  
If your child is absent due to lengthy illness please contact your class teacher for suggestions and information about possible work to complete at home.
