The Parent Council regularly consults and listens to parents on a wide variety of issues. Analysis of the feedback received identified homework as a topic frequently raised by a wide cross section of parents. To follow up on this the Parent Council undertook a detailed internet based survey of parents to better understand the issues and over the last year has consulted widely with parents on this topic at all opportunities. Following a review of the feedback from these consultations, the key findings were discussed with the school.
The school has reviewed the homework policy with all departments and updated it to take into account parents’ views, current requirements within the curriculum and the transitional period during the introduction of Curriculum for Excellence. We are pleased to announce that the new homework policy has been finalised and can be found on the school website under: School Information – Curriculum – Homework (click here)
