Safety, Learning, Respect- our three key values. Arlecdon primary School is proud to be part of the West lakes Multi-Academy Trust.



We believe that homework plays an important part in a child’s education. The benefit of doing homework must be instilled at an early age so that independent study can be achieved.

We are also aware that children have opportunities and experiences outside of school that are equally important in developing and enriching their lives. We will give careful consideration to making homework well-balanced across the school.


Homework Tasks


At the beginning of every year, each year group will be informed of what is expected of them with regard to homework.

  • Teachers will explain the organisation of homework to parents at the parents’ evening in September.
  • The school newsletter will inform parents about the main topics and units of work being covered. There is a termly overview for each class sent at the beginning of term to support independent study.
  • The amount of homework will increase as the child progresses through school. Teachers may occasionally set extra homework for the whole class if they feel it would be beneficial.

Pupils who fail to complete homework

All pupils are expected to complete homework on time. Teachers will keep records of pupils completing homework which will be regularly checked. If pupils fail to complete homework, teachers will contact parents to find out why.


Pupils with SEND

  • The school recognises that pupils with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) may require that specific tasks be set in the form of Individual Education Plans.
  • While pupils with SEND may benefit from special tasks separate from the homework received from other pupils, it is important that they also do as much in common with other pupils.
  • A balanced amount of the right type of homework will be set for pupils with SEND, in consultation with the parents andSENCO.
