Homework

Our homework policy is currently under review.  We would like you to be involved.  We are working with a number of focus groups to utilise the latest research to establish a culture around homework which not only develops students’ powerful knowledge and disciplinary knowledge, but also which is accessible for them, so that families can support them in their learning. 

The key questions we are considering are:

What is the purpose of homework for each key stage?

  • Teaching independent learning skills
  • Reinforcing knowledge retention
  • Teaching new content
  • Assessing understanding

What are our expectations for students and staff, and how does this relate to our purpose?

How do we limit the time spent on homework, and how to do communicate and support parents to support their children?

How do we ensure that all students can access the homework?

How can we use digital platforms to support our strategy?
