From October 2019, we will be trialling a move towards Family Learning and away from set homework. There have been recent articles related to the stress homework can cause and research has shown that the benefits for Primary school children are limited. However, when parents voted two years ago, the majority wished homework to continue.
Parental engagement and family learning have been shown to have much better impacts.
Glenurquhart Primary has various home learning opportunities and a page for each of these are included at the top.
We are therefore going to trial a monthly focus for homework after the October break.
