Homework Questionnaire for Parents and Carers

Little Hill recognises and values the family's central role in the education process, school and home to work together. We wish to be recognised as a school that always encourages partnership in order to support children's learning. The school also recognises that children work incredibly hard during the day and then often go to take part in after school and evening activities they need time to relax and need time to talk to their families. Children need time to 'be children' and therefore, homework should be a shared and enjoyable activity done whenever possible or should be the basics that will be vital to a child's education e.g. reading, spellings and timestables. We know from previous questionnaires that you value homework but what type would you prefer and when would suit you and your family's lifestyle? By completing this questionnaire, you are helping to set the new homework policy for each key stage.

Please read the following statements and tick the answer which best fits what you think about homework. Please only tick one box per statement. If you cannot answer leave it blank.

Which key stage group is your child in?*
