Homework is any work or activity which students are asked to do outside lesson time on their own.
Homework should not prevent students from participating in an activity after school such as sport, music or clubs of any kind. Equally, students should plan such activities to allow time to complete homework.
The purpose of homework
- To encourage students to develop the confidence and self – discipline to work on their own, an essential skill for adult life.
- To consolidate and reinforce skills and understanding.
- To extend school learning, for example through additional reading.
- To enable students to devote time to particular demands such as project work.
- To support the home/school relationship
The amount of homework
The school does not have a fixed homework timetable , Students will need to learn to manage their time so that they do some homework each evening.
As a general principle, teachers will not usually set substantial homework tasks to be completed for the next day, but will give students at least two days.
The time devoted to homework should increase as the student progresses through the school.
Types of homework
Homework might include such things as:
- Writing assignments.
- Learning assignments.
- Preparing an oral presentation.
- Reading in preparation for a lesson.
- Finding out information/researching a project.
It is important that students should have frequent and increasing opportunities to develop and consolidate their competencies as independent learners.
- The subject teacher is responsible for setting appropriate homework and marking it regularly. She/he should keep to the guidelines of time per subject.
- The teachers have to indicate homework has been set by filling in the relevant information in Rapport and later through e-mail.
- Teachers have to correct and hand back homework within a reasonable time. Substantial homework tasks should be set to ensure that there is more than one night in which to do it. This allows students to plan their time, participate in out of school activities if they wish.
- Homework must never be used as a punishment.
Parents’ role in homework
- Parents should support students with their homework but accept that their role will become less and less important as students become more responsible and independent.
- Parents should try and provide a suitable place where students can work.
- Parents should encourage students to meet homework deadlines. If parents feel that insufficient or too much homework is being set, they should contact the subject teacher or the class teacher who will investigate the situation.
- Parents should make it clear to students that they value homework and support the school in explaining how it can help them to progress.
- Parents should encourage students and praise them when homework is completed.
- Parents can check for homework given on your email.
- Students should always carry their Rapport with them and record all homework in it
- Students need to accept that deadlines must be kept. If students are Absent, they need to find out what work has been missed and catch up on it as soon as possible on their return. Being away on the day that homework is set is not an excuse for not doing it.
- Problems with homework should be resolved before the deadline. If Necessary students should the support of staff.
