We believe that homework that is regular and well-designed plays an extremely valuable part in a pupil's education and we use it to develop skills for time management and prioritising, independent learning and research.
We provide structure and support in terms of helping pupils record and manage their homework but over time they will take responsibility and develop strategies to manage their workload.
Pupils are issued with a homework timetable at the start of the academic year and pupils use their home school planner to record homework tasks. Tutors support the day-to-day management of homework by monitoring the home school planner.
A daily homework club is available for pupils who choose to attend.
A number of our pupil mentors are also available for those pupils who need a little extra help and guidance.
