Homework is an integral part of a student’s development. It not only enables us to cover the curriculum in greater breadth and depth, it enables students to consolidate their learning and explore areas of personal interest. It also helps develops independence and time management.
For a number of reasons a homework timetable is not practicable. However there is guidance as to how much your son or daughter should expect as a minimum each week.
Homework should be challenging, consolidate learning and deepen understanding. Therefore, homework tasks will take a number of forms (e.g. learning homeworks, written responses, creative project-based assignments etc.). All homework will have a clear learning objective, that the students will understand and the form that the task takes will be linked to this objective.
All homework must be shared with the students in class and is to be recorded onto MILK (online planner). Support and guidance on this new app will be circulated shortly. Should you wish to have this demonstrated to you, there will be people available on Meet the Tutor evening to demonstrate it.
There are opportunities for students to complete homework before, during and after school should they not be able to complete it at home. Students should receive appropriate feedback on their homework within a week of submission.
