As promised, this term we begin a homework review. Building on our parent survey, I have started this blog on the new website where parents can share their own thoughts on homework and these can be responded to by other Community members.
I will be moderating comments and there will always be a delay between when you post and when it appears on the website – please allow at least 24 hours before getting too disgruntled!
I am excited to see a conversation develop that will help us to discover the range of arguments both for and against homework and reflect with the evidence at hand.
To start the ball rolling, here is a link to the Education Endowment Trusts meta-analysis of the impact and cost of homework in primary schools: https://educationendowmentfoundation.org.uk/evidence-summaries/teaching-learning-toolkit/homework-primary/
There will be a Parent Voice following this up later in the term.
PLEASE COMMENT WITH YOUR VIEWS BELOW…
