Children at Heath House have daily homework from the age of 3.

All children take a reading book home each night recommended by the teacher and are expected to read each day under direction. The amount of homework increases with each year group. From the outset we look for parental involvement in developing reading, spelling and times tables. Pupils preparing for 11+ examinations have a set homework programme based on their individual needs.


All children are assessed regularly using NFER schemes in English, Maths, Verbal and Non Verbal Reasoning and Suffolk tests for Reading and Spelling, in order to ascertain progress.

Extra individual tutorials are given to children if deemed necessary.
