Primary school abolishes written homework because it is causing too much stress for pupils

A primary school in Devon has scrapped homework because it claims it causes too much stress - and it's encouraging pupils to read for 20 minutes in the evening instead.

David Perkins, headteacher of Littletown Primary Academy said decision was made based on educational research, consultation with parents, children and staff.

All pupils will be trying out the unconventional change between now and the end of the academic year, except for those in Year Six.

In general this is correct. Homework is not necessary and in most other progressive countries it is not assigned.
