Homework Policy

The focus is on the important skills of literacy and numeracy.

In Seaton Academy we believe homework need not, and should not, get in the way of other activities which children may do after hours such as sport, music and clubs of all kinds.  All of which are important in developing the whole child.


  • To develop the involvement of parents with their child’s learning through homework.
  • To ensure the parents have opportunity to be informed of current curricular needs.
  • To consolidate and practise the skills and learning concepts developed within the academy.
  • To begin to develop the ability to work effectively beyond the academy day in preparation for future years.

Homework will be set through Education City, Class Dojo or a physical sheet/activity. There will be a Literacy and Numeracy activity linked to the children's learning that week. 

In addition to this each year group sends home some regular activities to reinforce basic skills:

Nursery – shared library books. 

Reception – Reading books

Y1 – Reading books, weekly spellings.

Y2 – Reading books, weekly spellings.

Teachers will also give home activities at other times throughout the year where it is appropriate to do so.


Special Educational Needs

Where appropriate, tasks will be set to be completed at home as part of a child’s IEP.
