Supporting Your Child

From helping your child with homework and revision to supporting their mental health, we hope you find the following resources useful.


The completion of homework is an essential part of our pupils’ learning at Morpeth.

Homework is an opportunity to review, revise or prepare for the work covered in class and is a means of exploring the different aspects of the curriculum in pupils’ own time, at their own pace and at a level appropriate to the ability of each pupil.

Through the completion of different tasks and activities the aim is that pupils will develop self- reliance, and gain experience in working on their own. They will therefore become more independent, autonomous learners and gain confidence in applying knowledge. The completion of homework provides the possibility of increasing the learning time of our pupils, helping to raise their achievement.
