Killyman Primary School sees a value in children engaging in homework as a means of revising work done, in discovering information unavailable in school, involving parents in their children’s studies and in the development of good work habits. The school’s homework policy clarifies the type and amount of homework which you would expect your child to receive, the time required, teachers’ expectations regarding presentation and, of course, the way in which parents can help. If you wish to have a copy of the school’s homework policy, please telephone the school secretary or call at the school.
Types of homework may vary according to what the class is doing. Under the New Revised Curriculum more practical tasks may become a feature. To ensure regularity it will be school policy that homework will be set each night from Monday to Thursday though this may be relaxed for special occasions and around vacations.
