Homework provides students with opportunities to consolidate their classroom learning, pattern behaviour for lifelong learning beyond the classroom and involved family members in their learning.  Setting of homework takes into account the need for students to have a balanced lifestyle.

Homework that enhances student learning:

  • is purposeful and relevant to students needs

  • is appropriate to the phase of learning

  • is appropriate to the capability of the student

  • develops the student’s independence as a learning

  • is varied, challenging and clearly related to class work

  • allows for student commitment to recreational, employment, family and cultural activities.

Hatton Vale has a Homework Policy document which outlines the responsibilities of teachers and students and also includes suggestions for how parents/carers can support their child with homework.
