At St James the Great Academy, we believe that homework should...
- develop an effective partnership between school and parents in pursuing success for all;
- consolidate, reinforce and extend skills and understanding, across the curriculum;
- exploit resources for learning, of all kinds, at home;
- encourage pupils to develop the confidence, self discipline and motivation needed to study on their own, and prepare them for the requirements of secondary school.
In order to achieve this, we have implemented ‘Brain Builders’ homework from Year 1.
