Have Your Say on Homework at Passmores

Dear parents/carers,

For the remainder of term we would like to invite your comments on our setting of homework at Passmores.  If you have a view you can let us know either by contacting me (Assistant Principal Russell King at the school - email is included below) or by attending our Parents' Cooperative Council Meeting on Tuesday 4th December 2012 from 6pm

Please let me know if you are planning to attend the latter so that I can arrange sufficient chairs and refreshments.

The agenda for the coming meeting is published below:


  1. Passmores Cooperative Award. To consider a framework for a Bronze Award for students to achieve in Lower School.


  1. Review of the Homework Policy.  The Senior Leadership Team wish to canvass parental views on our provision of homework along the following lines:


What works well?

What doesn’t work well?

Amount of homework and organisation of homework?

The right level of challenge?

The value of homework?

Homework as a preparation for life in the 21st Century.


(Please note, these are merely suggested prompt questions  - I am more than happy to have an open dialogue on the subject).


  1. AOB.  To  r.king@passmoresacademy.com by Friday 30th November at 3.20 please.
