Homework

Homework is central to our vision for learning.  To be able to flourish and progress, our pupils need to know and have a solid grasp of key information, knowledge, and skills.  So that this learning is cemented and remembered it is important that it is revisited at various points.   

To facilitate this, and to ensure that pupils know more and remember more, our homework programme has been designed to allow for recall and practice that can not only prepare pupils to move forward but also to build their motivation and give staff an insight into where they may need to focus their efforts.

Homework is not an add-on to what goes on in class, it is carefully thought through and planned to support learning and as such we thank you for your support in ensuring that it is completed - we hope the homework schedule will help you to do this.  We set all of our homework through Teams which will guide pupils where to go next.  If there are any problems accessing this, then please do get in touch.

The central hub for all homework is on Microsoft Teams.  The Teams post will give further information about the homework and take pupil's to subsequent websites or apps where the homework will appear each time it's set.
