Between the ages of 5 and 16 children spend only 15% of their lives in school, so supporting them at home really improves their chances of success. Parents and Carers are by far the most important influences on children’s lives.
At Newfield School we recognise that Parents and Carers make a real difference to children’s education. When they and the school work together in partnership, children perform better. Children learn a great deal at school. Parents and Carers add to that by supporting their learning at home.
Demonstrating an interest in, and discussing their homework with them, helps children recognise and value learning as a lifelong process. Homework is part of a range of “out of class tasks‟ that build on classroom activities including study support and other events traditionally regarded as extracurricular. Homework is recognised as having an important role to play in the education of pupils and evidence suggests that it can be equivalent to an additional year of study over the course of a secondary career.
We appreciate the support our parents and carers offer, in giving additional homework support to their children. We enjoy helping you, to help your child. So with this in mind I've uploaded some support material, not only for you but for our pupils also. If you want any further help with ways to support learning at home, please either speak to the class teacher or to Miss Neeson who will help you.
