Homework Policy

Teaching and Learning Policy


With the majority of learning currently being conducted remotely, you may wonder why homework continues to be set. As well as having a responsibility to provide work for students to complete outside of lesson time, ensuring that students can work independently and develop skills learnt in lesson is a fundamental part of our goal to helping everyone reach their potential. Taking responsibility and developing self-discipline are just a few of the ways that homework continues to benefit students.

Therefore, Strand 1 weekly knowledge quizzes in subjects will still be set, where students can consolidate work covered in class. Strand 2 articles will also be set each week, creating a link between school subjects and the outside world, as well as increasing cultural capital.

Finally, Strand 3 termly reads will continue to be set weekly for students to listen to a member of staff read a chapter of a novel as they read along. These three strands work together to ensure that every student has the opportunity to develop and grow as an independent learner and harness a love of learning.
