As a school, we believe that homework encourages the development of independent learning skills and allows students to take more ownership of their education. Promotion and emphasis of homework skills at an early age will help to prepare students for Key Stages 4 and 5 and will in turn aid progression and development.
- Allows students to prepare for their learning in class or review topics already taught.
Develops students` independent learning and self regulation skills.
Improves students` literacy skills.
Provides opportunities for parents to engage with their child’s education.
Enables students to stretch themselves extending their learning where possible.

Each half term students will complete a homework project for a different subject area. They should receive and complete homework in other subject areas as shown in the relevant Key Stage area*.

Tips for Effective Homework
o Make sure your child has a quiet, well-lit place to do homework. Avoid having your child do homework with the television on or in places with other distractions.
|o Help your child with time management. Establish a set time each day for doing homework. Don‘t let your child leave homework until just before bedtime. Think about using a weekend morning or afternoon for working on big projects.|
|o Be positive about homework. Tell your child how important school is. The attitude you express about homework will be the attitude your child acquires.|
|o Stay informed. Talk with your child‘s teacher. Communicate with your child's teacher via their student planner about the quality and quantity of homework.|
|o Encourage your child to use the school library. This is open before school, during break time, lunch time and after school. There are lots of resources that can support your child in completing their homework.|
|o Encourage your child to attend Homework Clubs. Homework Clubs run every day after school in the Learning Support Unit. Students are able to work with teachers and access resources to help them complete their homework successfully.|
