Homework

At The Gateway Primary Free School, we believe that relevant, engaging, well-managed and frequent homework supports learners. It provides opportunities to:

  • Extend learning beyond the classroom and develop independence and self-discipline;
  • Strengthen and consolidate learning from the classroom;
  • Be more deeply creative, reflective and thoughtful in responses to ideas covered earlier in class;
  • Develop a dialogue between young people and their parents/carers about their learning;
  • Students to manage their time and meet deadlines;
  • Prepare for learning to come.

Every child will be given login details for Google Classrooms, Times Tables Rock Stars/Numbots, and My Book Blog.

Please follow the link to access My Book Blog.

We are committed to meeting the needs of all pupils, including those who have been identified as ‘More Able’ and therefore will set challenges in each section of the homework to further stretch and challenge these pupils enabling them to achieve their potential.

Parental Responsibility

  • In line with the academy and home agreement, it is the role of the parent to ensure homework is completed to the best of their child’s ability and returned to school by the deadline provided.
  • If reading books, maths booklets and reading records are not returned to school, parents will be sent a bill to cover the cost of their replacement.
