Yes

Approximate hours of homework given

In Key Stage 1, your child will receive homework from Monday to Thursday. Homework should not take more than 30 minutes each day.

In Key Stage 2, homework is set on a daily basis, with shorter, regular tasks for Numeracy and Literacy. Children should also spend at least 30 minutes engaged in meaningful reading every day. Extended project work is set each term for specific focuses. For Languages, ‘little and often’ activities are set at least on a fortnightly basis.

In High School, homework needs to be done every night. Teachers will set homework according to the homework timetable and it is important to complete this work for the date that it is due. Occasionally a teacher may set work on a non-homework day. This will be the exception rather than the rule.
