Homework is a key part of students’ learning, encouraging them to be independent and contributing to the quality of learning in school. We are very grateful to parents and carers who check and monitor the home learning of students. You can find out more about the expectations for home learning for each year group by checking the year group documents. We would also like to remind parents and carers that they can check home learning either via the student planner or by logging onto Show my Homework via the school website, using your username and password.
Please contact Ms Clay at school if you have difficulty with this, or if you would like to set up a new username.
