It depends on the age of the student. As a general rule, no homework is set in early years, but students are expected to take reading books home to read with their parents. In the Key Stage 1 and 2, from Year 3 upwards, students use a homework diary to record any homework they need to remember to do. Depending on their age, they are expected to do between one and a half hours of homework a week in Year 3, up to half an hour a day plus written work at the weekend in Year 6.
