Schools have been given the go-ahead to reduce the amount of homework they set for pupils after complaints from parents that studies are cutting in to family time.
It has been revealed today that the Government is planning to scrap the homework guidelines for schools set by the last Labour administration. Critics of the practice of setting homework for Primary age children have hailed this announcement as good news, whilst advocates of homework fear that this policy will send out the wrong message and devalue its role in the learning and assessment of schoolchildren.
We have created a short survey on current homework practices at the side of our page. Please complete the survey so that we can understand what is happening within schools today. We will use the results to produce a full response in a weeks time and would value your input into this subject.
