We believe that homework is an important part of school life, helping students to achieve their potential, and develop crucial learning habits. Such work should be designed to be an effective and beneficial part of and aid to the learning process and should reinforce the achievements of the child. Homework is seen as an integral and important part of the school’s home liaison strategy and of a partnership between teachers, students and parents. There are sanctions for students who fail to complete homework and these include lunchtime and after school detentions. All students are expected to bring a personal diary to school to note deadlines.
In Years 10 and 11, homework is set on a regular basis in all subjects. It is essential that homework is completed to a high standard and on time. Homework should be regarded as forming only part of the additional learning that students need to complete if they are to be successful at GCSE. There is always additional research, revision and further reading that can be done and there are many online revision resources to help with this.
