Primary School Homework Policy 2012 Calendar

The first of a three-phase construction project at Blaine High School was ready for the arrival of students on August 30. This new facility includes a high school cafeteria, a small theatre, CTE shop, and additional classroom space. Staff and students had a front row seat watching this new building take shape last year, and we all look forward to the expanded educational opportunities that will now be available in the new facility.

Phase II, which includes a two-story classroom building connecting Phase I to the Science Building, began in early July and crews are continuing to work diligently on framing the new building. Phase III, which includes renovation of the library and office areas, is scheduled to begin in June of 2018.

The timeline for future construction of the BHS stadium is not currently defined, but would likely represent a 4th phase in the high school’s capital improvements project. The District is reviewing options for funding, and the availability of contingency funds will not be known until 2019.

We continue to look forward to students and staff being provided with a safe, responsive, adaptive, and inspiring facility that ultimately serves to support both individual and collective teacher and learner needs and interests.

Homework Policy

Homework is an important feature of school life which helps build skills for life and work.  Below you can read all our about our vision for homework.

In Hermitage Primary School we encourage the formation of partnerships between home and school. One of the ways in which this has been established is through homework activities. These activities have to be meaningful and interesting, as well as providing useful reinforcement of class work recently undertaken.

In Hermitage Primary School homework activities have been carefully considered to:

  • Ensure progression from P1-P7
  • Further develop learning and teaching practising new skills
  • Reinforcing the content of the daily curriculum
  • Do some independent research
  • To show parents what is currently being studied in school
  • Be varied in subject matter and type to stimulate and maintain interest
  • Train children to set time aside at home for study.
  • Homework is monitored by class teachers and members of the management team
  • and is audited by pupil and parent questionnaires annually.

Each school year, during September, every stage in the school from P1-P7 has an information afternoon for parents. At this meeting, the appropriate homework for the stage is explained and discussed. A homework policy is given to parents which outlines the content and expected length of time to be spent on homework. These policies are amended annually by the class teachers to reflect current practice.

It is our aim at Hermitage Primary School that homework is achievable, appropriate to the pupil’s level of ability and, above all, an enjoyable, shared experience.
