Homework gives children the opportunity to learn to:
- Work independently
- Test their own understanding
- Organise their work
- Keep to deadlines.
Practising these skills in Years 7-9 will prepare them for GCSE coursework and Post 16 courses.
All students will have homework set on a regular basis. You will be informed of the structure early in Term 1. Your child will benefit from having a quiet area at home where they can do their homework which could also be used as an area to read for pleasure.
We use an online homework setting and monitoring system called ‘Show My Homework.’
Parents and students can access and view the homework set from a PC, tablet or smartphone via an App.
You will receive your login details once your child has registered in September.
For students who wish to work in the Learning Resource Centre, it is open at break and lunchtimes.
A room will be put aside twice a week at lunchtimes where Year 7 students will be able to receive help with their homework. This will be staffed by teachers and older students.
