Ormesby Primary School Homework Guidelines

Your child will be given tasks to practise, revise, complete, continue, investigate, learn or begin at home. We value your child’s opportunity to do this with you and encourage your active involvement in your child’s learning.

Homework is not a legal requirement and should not take the place of social and learning activities out of school. We hope all of our children will have the opportunity to develop chosen skills and enjoyment from the wealth of activities and groups available to children today.

Homework at Ormesby Primary School will be set for all children. Children who complete homework tasks will be rewarded accordingly at school. There will be no consequences for non-completion of homework tasks.
As a school, we believe that it is beneficial for children to complete homework tasks. However, the responsibility lies with parents to ensure that homework tasks are completed and returned to school on time.
Should you ever have any queries regarding Homework, please do not hesitate to speak to your child’s class teacher about it.
