1 Red Lane Homework Policy Believe, Achieve, Succeed! Reviewed September 2015

2 Homework Policy Rationale At Red Lane we believe that homework is an essential part of a child s education in order to allow them to extend their learning beyond the classroom whilst developing a sense of responsibility for their own learning. By consolidating the learning taken place within the classroom we encourage pupils to develop the confidence and self-discipline needed to study on their own, whilst developing an effective partnership between the school and parents and other carers in pursuing the aims of the school and working together to support our children in reaching their full potential. Aims To ensure consistency of approach across the school. To ensure progression towards independence and individual responsibility. To ensure the needs of the individual are taken into account and appropriate differentiation is provided. To improve the quality of the learning experience offered to individuals To ensure that parents or carers have a clear understanding of expectations for themselves and the pupil. To extend and support the learning experience by reinforcement and revision. To provide opportunities for parents, pupils and school to work in partnership. To provide opportunities for parents and children to work together to enjoy learning experiences. To prepare Year 6 children for secondary transfer. Guidelines The purpose of homework changes, as the pupils get older. It is important that parents are aware of the role these activities play in developing their child s learning. As children get older homework provides an opportunity for them to develop the skills of independent learning. This should increasingly become its main purpose. Any homework set should reflect the individual needs of pupils and demonstrate appropriate differentiation.

3 Homework should not be such that it prevents children from participating in activities after school such as sports, music and clubs of many kind. Homework should be used to consolidate skills and activities should not be provided that need to be taught by parents. Homework can be simply marked using the green circle, in line with the schools marking policy. However, if there are obvious errors when completing homework, then there should be clear evidence, either within the marking or future planning, that these have been addressed. Under 3 s Take home bags will be given to children containing different fun activities to complete at home. Nursery Phonics activities if children are ready for these during the Summer term. Weekly Sound of the Week and inform parents of next week s sound through the weekly news letter. Encourage parents to discuss which objects begin with that sound. Reception Weekly news letters to describe the activities for the week and explain the topic to encourage learning at home. Travelling Ted/ Leo the Lion mascots to go home each week. Encourage the children to write in the book. Lending library for encouraging reading minutes of book sharing, recorded in an individual reading record and monitored by the teaching staff within the class Weekly but informal, numeracy and phonics games/activities to be sent home to consolidate classroom learning. Assertive Mentoring Key Words presented to the children weekly. Flashcards and letter formation activities. Take home bags with resources and activities to complete. Rewards will be given to individual children who complete daily reading. Key Stage minutes of book sharing, recorded in an individual reading record and monitored by the teaching staff within the class. The class with the best reading percentage will be counted up each week and rewarded in assembly with the class getting a book or reading treat. Spellings of phonics patterns/spellings or keywords. Assertive Mentoring Maths Homework will be given out on Friday and collected on Wednesday of the following week. (Friday to Wednesday)

4 Take home bags will continued to be used in Year 1 and 2. These are designed to encourage the children to explore different reading and maths activities at home, at an appropriate level. Lower Key Stage 2 30 minutes a week maximum to consolidate learning taken place within class minutes of daily reading, recorded in an individual reading recorded and monitored by the teaching staff within the class on a daily basis. The number of children reading at home will be monitored each week as a percentage. Then each term a prize will be given to class with the most regular readers. (At least twice per week at home) Weekly spellings related to Read, Write, Inc. 10 spellings will be pretested on a Friday and then retested the following week after the children have had time to practise them. At the start of each topic, the pupils will be given a Homework Overview Sheet. This will present a range of activities, linked to the topic that the children will complete. A number of activity ideas will be presented and the minimum expectation will be 3 tasks from the sheet. Written homework will be handed out each week with a balance between English and Maths work given. The children without written homework will be given a Dojo warning as a way of monitoring over the course of the term. Each week the percentage of written homework returned will be monitored and the class with the best homework returned will be given a termly prize. Upper Key Stage 2 Approximately 45 minutes to 1 hour a week to consolidate learning taken place within class. Before and After school booster sessions may contribute towards the hours a week allocated homework time minutes of daily reading, recorded in an individual reading recorded and monitored by the teaching staff within the class on a daily basis. The number of children reading at home will be monitored each week as a percentage. Then each term a prize will be given to class with the most regular readers. (At least twice per week at home) Weekly spellings related to Read, Write, Inc. 10 spellings will be pretested on a Friday and then retested the following week after the children have had time to practise them. Booster materials may also be given. (Year 6) At the start of each topic, the pupils will be given a Homework Overview Sheet. This will present a range of activities, linked to the topic that the children will complete. A number of activity ideas will be presented and the minimum expectation will be 3 tasks from the sheet. Written homework will be handed out each week with a balance between English and Maths work given.

5 In addition, in Key Stage 2, children may be given homework activities that include: Preparing a presentation for the class Finding out information Making something Trying out simple scientific experiments The children without written homework will be given a Dojo warning as a way of monitoring over the course of the term. Each week the percentage of homework returned will be monitored and the class with the best homework returned will be given a termly prize. Parental Involvement Parents are encouraged to support and help their children with the completion of homework as and when necessary. However, we also recognise that in order to encourage independence, we need to see what children can do on their own. As such we encourage parents to communicate with class teachers if their child has struggled and received additional support when consolidating learning. This can be through the child s Reading Record or Homework diary, verbally, in writing through a brief letter/note to the class, or by indicating on the child s homework. In this way the teacher can follow this up in class. Children will also have the opportunity to complete homework during Homework club. At Red Lane we do recognise that not all parents will be able to support their children with their homework. This may be especially true for older pupils. Homework club will again offer an opportunity for pupils to gain extra support and the time required to complete homework. Parents are informed of homework expectations and their role in supporting the school and their child during our Meet the Teacher evenings delivered at the beginning of the new school year and through the school newsletter at the beginning of each term.
