Homework at Wattle Park PS

The purpose of homework at Wattle Park Primary School is to:


  • support the school program
  • respond to each child's specific needs
  • involve parents in their children's learning


We conducted a review of our homework policy in 2012. This was done through parent forums, teacher discussion and in conjunction with the education committee and the school council. Based on the feedback from all participants we updated our policy which you can read here.


As part of this new policy, we are trialling Homework Grids this term. This is based on the work of educational expert Dr Ian Lillico.


Homework will be done on a weekly basis from Monday to Monday. It will be consistent across each year level. See below for a more detailed explanation of the homework grid for each year level (it varies between year levels, increasing in complexity as the students move through the school.) Also included are example homework grids.
