Homework is used to support long term retention of knowledge.  It will focus on the core knowledge of what has been taught and be an opportunity for retrieval practice

  • teachers will fully explain the purpose of homework when set
  • homework will often be integrated into classroom activities, for example our Do Now activities may be an extension of what students have read or carried out at home
  • homework may also be an opportunity for extended independent practice on taught knowledge
  • teachers will hold high expectations on the standard of homework submitted

Homework is set as follows:

  1. Key Stage 3
    Maths, English and Science will be set once a week and all other subjects will be set once a fortnight
  2. Key Stage 4 and Key Stage 5
    All subjects will set homework at least once per week
