Homework

 

Homework is set in the core subjects each week as well as a project based homework for the Foundation Subjects. Homework will be very carefully selected, in order to ensure that it is a positive experience for both parents and pupils, re-inforces basic skills and can be completed independently

All pupils are expected to do homework. This allows them to consolidate class work, develop the skills of independent learning and encourages future study.

Pupils may have had distressing experiences with homework in previous schools and any homework given will be planned carefully to provide a positive experience for both pupil and parents. As some pupils find it difficult to complete homework at home; a quiet room is available in school and staffed at break times to support their homework studies.

Homework will be very carefully selected by staff in order to ensure that it reinforces classroom work and is related to ongoing programmes of study.

Homework will consolidate and reinforce skills and understanding, and should provide opportunities for parents, pupils and the school to work in partnership.

Pupils, staff and parents all have a role in ensuring that homework is a positive experience.
