Children throughout the school are encouraged to continue their learning at home in a variety of ways including using online programmes. Some homework, especially in Key Stage 1, is set with the intention that it is done with the guidance of a parent.
As pupils move through the school, they will work more independently. However, all homework is most effective when supported by parental encouragement and supervision. As the homework set is intended to reinforce and support work that the child has done or is about to do in class, this is one of the most effective and easiest ways a parent can directly help their child at school.
