In Reception, children are expected to read at home regularly, but there is no formal homework. In Years 1 and 2 the children continue to be expected to read at home regularly, and will have weekly times tables and spellings to learn. Occasionally they may be set a specific task to consolidate some classwork, but there is no formal homework.

Year 3 to 6 continue to have times tables and spellings to learn on a weekly basis, and they are expected to read regularly. In addition they have some homework, set out in the table below. These tasks are always linked to work that is being completed at school and are designed to deepen the children’s understanding.

There is a daily prep club which runs after-school for Years 3-6, where they can complete their homework under the supervision of an adult and there is a weekly prep club for Reception – Year 2 in order for them to have support with their spellings, times tables and reading, if they desire.

Prep homework is set on a Friday and due on Tuesday. Pre-Prep homework is set on Friday and tested on Tuesday.
