Homework at CCYD
Why do we set homework?
Homework is an important component in your children’s education. It improves your child’s thinking and memory and develops positive study skills and habits that will serve him or her well throughout life.
What does homework do?
Homework encourages your child to use their time wisely and work independently, It allows your child to review and practice what has been covered in class and take responsibility for his or her work. Homework encourages your child to explore subjects more fully than classroom time permits and extends their learning by applying skills to new situations.
How can parents help?
Homework helps parents to learn more about what your child is learning in school, it allows you to communicate with your child and encourages you to spark your child’s enthusiasm. You can help your child learn to use resources such as libraries, reference materials and computer web sites to find information. Homework can also be used as a tool to evaluate your child’s progress. Its all part of the learning cycle, School, Student, Parents – Working Together.

How do I know if my child has homework?
Homework is discussed and handed out during lessons and pupils are expected to record the homework task into their journals. This can be a short description of the task or just the homework number. Parents are responsible for checking journals and discussing homework with their child. In the instance that the child has misplaced or accidentally damaged the homework sheet then you can access copies directly from the homework index page via this website and print it out.
If parents do not have access to print facilities then you can email the school and request a print out which will be available for collection from the school reception.
If your child has misplaced or lost their journal you need to inform their Head Of College for a replacement. An after school detention will be issued if you fail to complete homework or produce poor quality homework. If you need materials/equipment to complete the homework you MUST discuss this with your teacher and parents before the hand in date.
