Homework

Rationale
We at North Road Community Primary School believe that children should be encouraged to develop their independent learning skills at home as well as at school.

Why is homework important?

  • It raises your children’s achievement
  • It consolidates and extends the work they have done in school
  • It helps to inform you about your children’s school work and allows and gives you the opportunity to support this work
  • It is a valuable life skill and develops good work habits for secondary school and future employment.
