Homework

Aims

The purpose of homework is:

  • To encourage pupils to develop the skills, confidence and motivation needed for lifelong independent learning.
  • To consolidate skills and understanding.
  • To extend learning beyond the classroom e.g. through additional reading and research.
  • To manage particular demands, such as GCSE deadlines.

How to support your child:

  • Doing learning activities at home - not necessarily helping with homework, but keeping to homework routines and offering a hand where needed.
  • Taking an interest and supporting learning at home - not repeating school work but reinforcing it with fun family learning like trips, books and games.
  • Keeping track of how well your child is doing and encouraging and supporting them to set their goals high enough to reach their full potential.
