At Cranborne we recognise the crucial role that the partnership between home and school plays in enabling your child to achieve their full potential.  Home learning is one of the ways that we seek to foster this partnership.

Regular well-planned homework can:

  • Develop good work habits and discipline for the future.
  • Help parents and carers gain an insight into their child's education.
  • Support your child's development as an independent learner.
  • Provide an opportunity for children to practise skills learned at school..


Children at Cranborne have access to mathletics to develop their mathematical skills.  You will find their log in inside their reading record.  Please see your child's class teacher for any issues with this.
