At St Ann's Primary School, we acknowledge the importance of family time in an increasingly complex and busy world. Our homework policy aims to support equitable practices whilst recognizing the diversity of families in our school community. We believe that homework should not cause family stress or jeopardize the right of children to enjoy a balanced lifestyle. Our approach supports the importance of family time, relaxation and play, and acknowledges the varied outside of school hours activities in which students participate.
At St Ann's Primary School, our homework policy aims to support equitable practices whilst recognizing teacher workload. We believe a teachers' biggest impact is spent engaging with students and having the time to reflect on and plan for dynamic differentiated learning experiences in the classroom.
