Homework

At Gurney Pease Academy homework provides pupils with opportunities to develop the skills of independent learning.

Over a period of time pupils will hopefully establish the habit of regularly devoting time to study on their own. Learning of spellings and tables, reading are regular tasks which can be undertaken at home and we would actively encourage parents to support their children when working at home.
