As a new school we are constantly reviewing current policies and procedures across the authority and nationally in order to develop learning and teaching opportunities for our children in our unique school context.
To enable us to get it right for every child in our community, we invite you to join us for a monthly exploration of current educational thoughts and trends. If you are interested in the topic, please read the material and share your views with us completing the ‘Thinking Together’ template on this page before popping it into the school office. Your views will be uploaded at the end of each month.
This month’s topic looks at the importance and impact of homework in the primary school – should we or shouldn’t we? Please find attached an article by Graeme Paton, Education Editor of The Telegraph which appeared in The Telegraph in October 2014, ‘Homework ‘damages’ primary age pupils’. As you will see, this article relates to the English education system and the schools featured are English schools however the topic for consideration remains relevant.
