Supporting Learning at Home

Research tells us that parental involvement in pupil learning results in better outcomes for children. Children who regularly learn at home have better school outcomes than children who do not. At primary level, the evidence is strongest for short and focused homework projects.

Learning at home has a number of potential benefits including consolidation of what has been learned in lessons, preparation for subsequent lessons and tests, and the development of independent learning skills. 

As with home learning more widely, parental support for homework can promote the self-regulation in children necessary to achieve academic goals including goal-setting, planning, perseverance, and the management of time, materials, attentiveness, and emotions.
