The Governors and staff believe that homework is an important aspect of a child’s education. We believe it encourages children to realise that learning can take place outside the classroom as well as promoting independent learning thus encouraging the child to take great responsibility for their personal progress. Homework allows parents, carers and the school, to work in partnership for the benefit of their child.
While homework is important, it should not prevent children from taking part in the wide range of out-of-school clubs and organisations that play an important part in the lives of many children. We are well aware that children spend more time at home that at school, and we believe they develop their skills, interests and talents to the full only when parents encourage them to make maximum use of the experiences and opportunities that are available outside of school.
In addition to your support with homework, all parents are asked to sign the Home/School Diary on a weekly basis.
Any messages that you put in the Home/School Diary for us should be initialled by a member of staff to indicate that they have been seen. If your message has not been initialled, please check with your child that it has been shown to a member of staff and then contact your child’s class teacher.
Thank you to the Year 6 parents who braved the stormy weather to attend our Y6 SAT information evening where we shared what lies ahead for the Y6 children and how both the school and parents can support them.
We want to ensure that when the children come to the SATs they are ready. They will not be experiencing anything new or unexpected and should not be daunted or anxious. It is a chance to shine and recognise their academic achievements while at St Cuthbert Mayne.
Please view the presentation if you need to recap some of the points raised.
