We're seeking your views about homework.
As part of our on-going school improvement work, I am reviewing our homework policy. It is essential that, as part of the review, I gather the thoughts and opinions of parents. I would be grateful if you could find 5 minutes to answer the following questions via the following link; http://bit.ly/parents-homework
As you will no doubt be aware the most complex issue with homework is the range of differing views around what it should look like for your own children. We know that the current government have removed the specifications around how much should be given in primary schools but Ofsted will still look to see how homework links effectively with the learning taking place in school and grade us according to how well this is achieved.
We aim to create a draft policy by the end of the summer term which we will trial having collected as many views from our school community as possible. Pupils will be given the opportunity to enter their views into a pupil version at school. This will evolve as we see what you want for your children, what the children want as well as what staff feel is appropriate and effective.
It will be incredibly hard to suit everyone but we do promise a fair and open consultation which we hope you will enjoy being part of.
Our aim is to create a policy that is written by all of us and means something to each of us with an interest in the children here at Caythorpe Primary School.
Please complete the survey by Monday 3rd May and I will compile the results of your valuable feedback.
