Homework is an integral part of life at DCIS. All students from Reception and above are involved in the programme. At DCIS, the aim of homework is to provide opportunities for independent learning to be undertaken outside of curriculum time that reinforces, extends or enriches current learning.
Homework enables children to take responsibility for their own learning and become independent learners who make choices about their learning and develop perseverance. Homework enables children to practise and consolidate skills, and aims to broaden the context of learning and provide enrichment and extension. Crucially, homework also provides opportunities for parents to be involved, appropriately, in their children’s learning.
Dover Court tries to promote partnerships that will increase parental involvement, supporting the social, emotional, and academic growth of children.
