The children at Millbrook Combined School and Nursery are provided with homework on a regular basis. This is in place for the following reasons:
- The school believes that regular homework is part of a good education.
- To reinforce and extend the learning that takes place in school.
- Maintains links with parents thereby enlisting their help, keeping them informed and gaining their support.
- Encourages each child to take responsibility for their work, this includes self-discipline and self-motivation.
We take care to ensure that homework tasks are appropriately matched to the age and abilities of the children. The School’s homework arrangements are communicated to parents in our ‘Curriculum News’ which is shared with parents at the beginning of the school year.
The school has a clear and established homework policy with guidance about how parents can help to support their child. Copies of our Homework Policy can be found on the website under Forms and Policies.
