Homework is directly linked with current school based learning. In most cases, it is reinforcing concepts and skills already introduced at school, or to complete assigned tasks from the day's work.
Generally, homework is not lengthy and will probably require no more than thirty minutes to complete. It is expected that whenever homework is set, it be completed to the best of the student's ability. If students have issues with homework they should be brought to the attention of the teacher.
Daily reading for all ages is encouraged.
