It is an expectation at Cliffview Primary School that all teachers will set homework for their students. It is to be noted that study is different from homework, (Study is self directed and is IN ADDITION to class homework. Where homework is not provided, students may use their allocated home time for study) and teachers are encouraged to develop students understanding of this further. The following guidelines form the basis of our policy:
Homework facilitates the achievement of learning outcomes, forms part of a developmental learning program that is responsive to individual needs, clearly relevant, supported by classroom practice and, where appropriate, is developed in collaboration with students, and is not used as form of punishing students or means of securing discipline.
