Homework Procedures

Homework is given: on a Monday, due on Wednesday; Wednesday, due on Friday and Friday, due for Monday. These days are subject to change and on occasion homework deadlines may vary. Please encourage your child to complete their homework to a high standard and support where necessary and support independent learning via the Internet and in particular ‘MyMaths’ and ‘Grammar Bug’ homework.
