This is a good way to stay in touch with what their children are learning, and they make sure they are up to speed with their peers.
Parents may use homework assignments to learn about what their child is doing and their interests.
When you have multiple responsibilities you need time to ensure they get done properly.
Some students feel they just do not have the time for homework nowadays.
Some students have their parents help them with their work.
It can be a challenging task to juggle limited time with homework, house chores, after school activities and even a part-time job or babysitting.
This is by no means an exhaustive list and is open to constant change, although many of these tasks and activities will be used on a regular basis.
Homework activities will change to meet the needs of the pupils involved and activities that might be occurring in class. Whilst there is a legal responsibility for a school to set homework on a regular basis, the school cannot enforce the completion of homework and therefore, will not punish children for failing to complete some, or all of their homework.
All homework tasks and activities will have a clear purpose and assist pupils in the process of their academic development. At Lincewood Primary School we are very keen for parents to support and help their children with homework.
We take the view that children are likely to get more out of an activity if parents get involved as long as they do not take over too much.
