Homework Policy


All classes from Junior Infants to 6th class will get homework. Homework will be introduced to Junior Infant classes during the course of the year, at a time when the class teacher feels it is appropriate.

Important points:

  • All pupils do not necessarily get the same homework – provision is made for children with differing ability.
  • There is a balance between oral, reading and written work.
  • Pupils in 2nd to 6th classes have a homework journal. Pupils in Senior Infants and First Class have homework copies.
  • Parents are expected to sign the homework journal/ copy on nights when homework is given.
  • Homework is not given at weekends.
  • On special occasions pupils may be given homework off.

Time guidelines are as follows:

  • N. Shóis / 10 mins + library book
  • N. Shin / 10 – 15 mins + CAPER
  • Rang 1 / 15 mins + CAPER
  • Rang 2 / 20 mins + CAPER
