Stop schools giving children homework to complete in officially sanctioned school holidays
This petition had 6 supporters
Recent changes in the law made it illegal for children to have a holiday whist in term time.
Im petitioning against schools giving children homework to complete during the yearly allotted holidays. I feel a level of school homework is responsible during term time, but should not be issued for officially sanctioned holidays.
Children should not be sent home with work to complete during the holidays full stop, this is not only unwarranted, it is also disturbing to holiday breaks and holiday plans having to complete work.
if the school won't allow time in term to take the children on holidays why should they dictate what they do when we are on an official sanctioned holiday.
School holidays are for a reason and to allow the children to have a break, rest and recover.
More and more children become more anxious because of the level of homework issued, which leads to less rest and recuperation and a lack of ability to focus on the new term.
