“PUPILS 52 boys and girls, aged 4-11 A teeny-tiny school with just over 50 pupils in three classes – but golly, it’s a good one. A mother emails: ‘When I looked around Llangrove, the children were coming in from break and one handed me a flower on her way past, which was pretty compelling.’ Llangrove is a largeish village (one pub, one school), 15 minutes north of Monmouth in a glorious valley. Deputy head Sarah Dean is, says a mother, ‘lovely and very down to earth’, and there are two ‘fantastic’ male teachers. There’s great focus on good manners (pupil behaviour was rated Outstanding by Ofsted), and strong links with the church and the local community. We’re impressed with the IT provision – lots of laptops, iPads and interactive whiteboards in each classroom. Pupils praise the after-school sports clubs, swimming lessons in Monmouth in the summer, theatre trips to Hereford and an annual whole-school expedition – one year they went to Barry Island, which must have been a whole lot of fun.”

Homework

Homework

We would like to encourage all parents to become involved with the education of their children, as the benefit for all concerned is great. The homework policy of the school is that children share their reading with parents each evening. This need not be a long session; five to ten minutes each day will help a child progress. Talking about books the story or information.

In Years 1–6, children are given spellings to learn each week in preparation for a weekly spelling test. In addition, pupils are given certain tasks to complete at home e.g. learning poetry/songs, obtaining information etc.  

If the child is having real difficulty, or becomes distressed, we ask parents to let us know, rather than persisting, as we need to know when the child has not understood the work set.

We also have good quality homework activities provided through online learning websites such as MyMaths.
