Burlington C of E Primary School

Homework Questionnaire

Important Dates

We would like to hear more of your views on homework at Burlington Primary School.


The following questions are based on early feedback and areas we are keen to get right as we develop our new policy.


We aim to create a draft policy by the end of the summer term which we will trial having collected as many views from our school community as possible.


As you will no doubt be aware the most complex issue with homework is the range of differing views around what it should look like for your own children. We know that the current government have removed the specifications around how much should be given in primary schools but Ofsted will still look to see how homework links effectively with the learning taking place in school and grade us according to how well this is achieved.


We are open to developing our new policy and have no fixed plan in mind – this will evolve as we see what you want for your children as well as what staff and governors feel is appropriate and effective.   


It will be incredibly hard to suit everyone but we do promise a fair and open consultation which we hope you will enjoy being part of.


Our aim is to create a policy that is written by all of us and means something to each of us with an interest in the children here at Burlington CE Primary School.
