Homework policy

At Merton Abbey, homework activities are an important part of our home/school partnership and all children are expected to take part in a variety of homework tasks to enhance and support their work in class.


Our homework policy is designed to:


  • Ensure consistency of approach throughout the school.
  • Provide opportunities for parents and children to work in partnership and to share and enjoy learning experiences.
  • Consolidate and reinforce basic skills and knowledge, especially in English and Maths.
  • Provide opportunities as children get older to develop skills of independent learning.
