Parents are asked to support the school by helping their child to complete all work. However, we are conscious as a school that in order to provide a well rounded education and to develop a broad and balanced range of interests and hobbies for their children. Parents are asked to encourage their children to take part in a range of after school activities. Homework always needs to be balanced with the child’s other interests. Activities such as swimming, cubs/scouts, rainbows/brownies, dance clubs such as ballet and Irish dancing, sports clubs such as football, rugby, karate, gymnastics and tennis as well as music and drama clubs. Homework also needs to be balanced with family life and activities such as visits to the Epping Forest Discovery Centre, Suntrap family days, local and national museums, art galleries and places of historical, scientific or natural beauty. Quality time together is so important.
