Homework

Homework is work that is set to be completed in addition to the timetabled curriculum. It contains an element of independent study, in that it is not usually directly supervised by a teacher. Homework makes a valuable contribution to children’s learning.

Homework will continue to be set on Class charts and recorded in student planners. Homework frequency will be set in line with the number of lessons students have over their timetable.

Homework enables students to:

  • consolidate and extend work covered in class or prepare for new learning activities
  • access resources not available in the classroom
  • develop research skills
  • have an opportunity for independent work
  • show progress and understanding
  • provide feedback in the evaluation of teaching
  • to enhance their study skills e.g. planning, time management and self-discipline
  • to take ownership and responsibility for learning
  • engage parental co-operation and support
  • create channels for home school dialogue

Homework can be:

  • Independent learning
  • Consolidation of work in class

The following will take place if a student fails to complete their homework:

Class teacher will issue a ‘Homework not Completed’ when a student has missed a homework deadline in Class Charts. The student will be set a realistic time scale to have the homework completed.

Heads of Department will  monitor departmental ‘Homework not Completed’ issued. Where students are issued 3x ‘Homework not Completed’ in their subject area within one half term, parents/carers will be contacted.

Head of Year – Class Charts will alert the Head of Year when any student receives 5x ‘Homework not Completed’ across any subject within one half term. It is expected that a conversation will be held between the Head of Year and that parents/carers will be contacted and invited in for a meeting.

Assistant Headteacher – Class Charts will alert the Assistant Headteacher when any student receives 8x ‘Homework not Completed’ across any subject within one half term. It is expected that a conversation will be held between the Assistant Headteacher and that parents/carers will be contacted and invited in for a meeting.
