At Vittoria we believe that home learning should…
- Provide opportunities for children and parents/families to engage in shared learning experiences and promote partnership between home and school .
- Provides opportunities for children to build independence and responsibility at home.
- Be manageable and enjoyable and require limited resources.
- Give parents an understanding of what their child has been learning at school.
Please see our homework policy below which outlines homework at Vittoria for each Key Stage.
Support for Parents
If a parent or carer requires support or has a concern with their child’s homework, please book a meeting with the class teacher or speak to a member of SLT who are always available on the gate in the morning or at home time.
We offer regular Parent Workshops run by our subject leaders as well as external visitors to provide parents with strategies to support their children at home in different subjects, including reading, writing, maths and phonics.. We also offer free homework clubs for KS1 and KS2 to provide children with a calm space to complete their homework with a member of staff to support them.
