Ethos

Homework is an essential part of education with far-reaching benefits for all concerned. It is one of the principal ways in which pupil achievement can be raised. The practice of doing homework on a regular basis ensures that independent home study becomes second nature to our pupils. Our policy is to set homework regularly for all pupils. Homework is used by the teacher to reinforce and develop work done in class, to monitor progress, and to extend and enhance learning.

Aims

Homework is given to:

  • enable pupils to understand that independent learning is vital to achieving success
  • consolidate and reinforce skills, knowledge and understanding acquired in lessons
  • extend and enhance their learning and skills in a subject or topic
  • challenge and extend gifted and talented pupils
  • provide focused and sustained support for less able pupils
  • develop independent learning skills which enable them to take responsibility for how they plan and organise their time
  • experience the importance of meeting deadlines in preparation for examination coursework
  • enable teachers to gauge pupil understanding of given tasks
  • give parents/carers the opportunity to become involved and support their child's learning and work in partnership with the school
