Homework

Homework Policy for Key Stage 3.

Homework is an essential part of the learning process and should be planned, marked and reviewed in the same way as classwork. We aim to encourage confident, autonomous learners who develop independent skills of enquiry, evaluation and creativity.

The completion of homework is an integral part of the curriculum, systematically differentiated to target different learning needs and abilities, to aid student progress. It is also important because it is the main channel by which education can become a shared responsibility between home and school, allowing parents and carers to support their children as well.

Homework should:

  • Meet the needs and aspirations of all students.
  • Develop the ability to work independently by encouraging an ethos of high achievement and self-motivation towards academic progress.
  • Provide opportunities for demonstrating understanding and consolidation of work done in class.
  • Develop skills of personal organisation, time management, revision and study skills.
  • To stretch and challenge students to develop their personal potential.
  • To prepare students for the challenges of working independently and without the close supervision of the class teacher

The Academy does not have a fixed homework timetable with time allocated for different subjects on different evenings, but instead homework will follow and reflect the content in lessons as they are taught as so each subject is allowed flexibility in when work is set. Students will need to learn to manage their time so that they do some homework each evening.

Each week pupils are expected to complete:

  • 60 minutes of independent or guided reading – scholastic / personal book choice (Ms Burt will be able to tell you which books are correct for your reading age)
  • The completion of 2 tasks on Hegarty Maths
  • A minimum of 1 lesson on Bedrock in accordance with the bedrock deadlines:
