Homework is a very valuable addition to work that children do in school.  Our policy is very well supported by all parents. 

In Notre Dame Primary homework is given up to four evenings per week.  Homework should take up to 40 minutes (15-20 minutes in Primaries 1-3).  Activities to reinforce literacy and numeracy skills form the basis of most tasks.  Other activities include problem solving, research and observation.  In the upper school pupils are encouraged to conduct further research topic work to extend learning and promote independent study. 

Homework diaries are provided and parents are asked to encourage their children in self-discipline by setting aside time and space for homework.  

Samples of pupils’ class work and review sheets inviting parents to comment are sent home each term.
