Background Slideshow


Here at Ray Lodge Primary School we believe that homework is important. We believe that it can:

  • Consolidate, reinforce and extend skills and understanding particularly in English and Maths.

  • Provide opportunities for families and children to work together.

  • Allow families to gain an understanding of what children are learning in school.

  • Allow children to progress towards becoming more independent learners.


If you have any questions about the homework your child gets - please ask the classteacher. We are here to help you.

How much homework will my child receive?
