Homework

We are highly ambitious for our students and know the best way for them to be successful in their academic studies is to continue their hard work outside of their time in lessons. The impact of reviewing small chunks of information on a regular basis has a huge impact on being able to recall them, and we believe this is a really effective strategy to aid your child’s learning.

Self-Quizzing - each day

Students are expected to complete their Self-Quizzing each weekday in their Self-Quizzing books. They need to write 10 questions and answers based on the topics in their knowledge organiser. This is checked in roll call each morning. If a student fails to achieve this, they will attend a compulsory Study Support session on the following Monday from 3-4pm where they will be supported to catch up.

Online homework - each week

Students are expected to complete Maths, English and Science homework using our online platforms each week. This week, students will be given their logins for each of the online platforms by their Maths, English and Science teachers. If homework is not completed then students will be required to attend a compulsory Study Support session from 3-3.30pm on a set day. In Study Support, students will work with subject specialists to catch up on the work missed. If not completing homework becomes a regular occurrence then students will attend compulsory catch up sessions after school each week.
