HOMEWORKING FROM YOUR IEP !

Many parents would like us to provide homework for their children to do outside school hours. From Autumn 2016 we now list homeworking tasks in each student’s IEP targets which are sent home at the beginning of each term.
Many of our pupils cannot do written work and it would not be useful for them to be sent this type of work. For those who can undertake simple worksheets we also know that there is a limit to the quantity it is useful for our pupils to do.

It is extremely useful for young people with learning difficulties to practice their skills through practical tasks.
