Homework Policy

In Moorpark Primary School the following Homework Policy is in operation:-

There will be three blocks of formal homework:

  • September to November
  • January to March
  • April to May

Primary 1 Reading Homework will be given throughout each term. Homework is normally set on a Monday to be completed by Friday. We ask parents/carers to encourage their child to complete the set homework to the best of their ability and to sign the completed work.

Each term class teachers will issue letters to parents/carers informing them of the tasks which will be given.  Appropriate jotters will be provided for the completion of homework tasks.  A Home/School Diary listing tasks to be completed will be sent home each week. Parents/Carers should be encouraged to write comments and/or concerns in this diary.

Homework tasks may include the following:

Primary 1 – 3

Children in Primaries 1 to 3 use the Rigby Star and Oxford Reading Tree schemes.

They will have reading most nights.  Other reading related activities may be given as homework. This could include:
