Homework has to be very individual to the pupils who attend The Bridge.  Our policy is that once pupils start the school (not nursery) we agree what homework would be appropriate at the two regular meetings we hold with you as parents/carers in school when we hold the annual review and the IEP meetings.  Each IEP has a box we have added to the bottom which states what homework would be appropriate.


Homework can be a whole range of things.  It will vary for each child and is likely to change as a pupil gets older, develops or if their needs and priorities change.  For example, it may include:


  • home and school working on consistent strategies for behaviour following an agreed behaviour support plan.
  • using particular symbols, signs or objects or words to support your child's understanding and communication.
  • using a particular communication aid or system at home that has been advised by therapists.
  • family and school using consistent strategies to support a child needing sensory information.
  • having a regular book or of work home to complete at home.
  • working on a toileting, dressing or eating/drinking programme.


The types of homework are varied for each child.  Our policy is underpinned by the belief that we want to support and work with you to help your child achieve the very best they can.


Homework is not given to our young children in the Foundation Stage but it remains central to work together collaboratively with parents.


Please talk to your child's teacher if you want more support or guidance in this area and also use the opportunities at the annual review and IEP meetings to discuss further.
