Homework has always been a contentious issue. It dichotomises opinion in parents, staff, students and the practice of education systems around the World.

Notre Dame’s Homework Policy therefore needs to be looked at within the cultural expectation of the school and its families. It needs to fit the school ethos of giving life to the full!
