Homework is an important part of a young person’s development and will be set regularly. Sometimes homework will be the completion of work set online.

Private reading remains important for all progress and academic success. Please encourage your child to read as much as possible – fact or fiction, books, magazines, newspapers etc.

Why we Assign Homework

We believe homework is important because it is a valuable aid in helping students make the most of their experience in school. We give homework because it is useful in reinforcing what has been learned in class, it prepares students for upcoming lessons, it teaches responsibility and it helps students develop positive study habits as well as preparing them for their working life.

Parents’/Carers Homework Responsibilities

Parents’/carers play an important role in making homework a positive experience for their children. Where possible we ask that parents/carers support the Academy in making homework a top priority. If parents/carers can provide a quiet environment a clear routine and the necessary supplies this would be very much appreciated. An important part of homework is offering support, praise and encouragement.

If your child has not got homework or has completed it in school, private reading remains important to aid progress and academic success. Please encourage your child to read as much as possible.
