Homework

Regular homework is a valuable part of the school curriculum. Homework enables our students to consolidate good learning habits.

It allows them to work completely independently, therefore enabling teachers to assess what students are able to do outside the classroom unsupported. Homework strengthens students' knowledge.

Homework enriches students' experiences, allowing them to explore subjects beyond the classroom environment and curriculum. Homework prepares students well for further study where independent learning skills are vital.


Homework procedures

Students will be given a small termly planner and they are expected to record all homework into it lesson-by-lesson. Students are expected to complete all set homework and should seek the support of their classroom teacher if they find homework too challenging. We ask parents to check and sign the weekly planner to support their child in the completion of homework.

All homework will be set on Microsoft Teams. Please contact the academy if you are having difficulties with IT or internet access at home.
