Proud to be part of the Aim High Academy Trust




At Gillas Lane Primary Academy, we know that in order to achieve the best outcomes for our children, we need to work in partnership with our parents and instil a commitment to and a love of learning in our school community.

One of the ways we achieve this is through regular homework: 


Reception - once a week in the form of games or activities to share at home


KS1 and KS2 - one piece of literacy and one piece of maths homework each week


Homework is set home each Friday and should be returned, completed to a high standard, by Wednesday. If children need extra support with homework, we run a weekly drop in homework club.
