Primary homework

In line with French law we do not set extended written homework. Homework set will take the form of reading, research, discussion and spelling/grammar practice. Work done at home will be used to prepare for the following week's lesson. We aim to encourage and support children's pleasure in reading and writing and we will therefore offer suggestions for writing (available on the VLE), should your child wish to use these. We will always respond to any extra writing that is done, through praise, sharing and recognition of effort. Homework will be recorded on the VLE for the week due. Please contact your child's teacher if you feel your child has any particular difficulties over understanding or completing the homework. Email is the best method for making this sort of contact. Please see the Primary Staff page for addresses.

If your child is absent due to illness, please check the VLE for work that needs to be completed for the following lesson.


You should attend the parent-teachers’ meeting at the beginning of the year, which is normally in early October. Your child’s class teacher will give you valuable advice about what types of homework will be set during the year, and how it should be done. Details of this meeting are sent by email in September.

There is also an individual parent-teacher meeting in late January. Nearly all primary parents attend this important meeting. Details of this meeting are sent by email about 3-4  weeks in advance.
