• NCA recognises and believes in developing a life-long love of learning. It wants to encourage good study habits and independent learning skills both at school and at home. We want to assist in developing a positive personal attitude towards study and research that will help students in their ongoing secondary and tertiary education.
  • Regular homework of an appropriate nature will be encouraged across the whole school.
  • Year 1-3: Regular homework will consist mainly of reading books, sight words, basic spelling skills and mathematics.
  • Year 4-8: In addition to the above for Year 1-3, older students will be encouraged to do more research and project-based work based around curriculum unit studies. Extra skill building work will be distributed to individual pupils as the need arises.
  • Homework should take no more than one hour a night to complete.
  • We invite parents to take an active interest in any work sent home.
