At our school, we believe that quality teaching matters and homework is regarded as an important piece of the teaching and learning picture. Consequently, homework is highly valued as it provides an opportunity for pupils to practise, develop and extend their learning, independently of their teacher, so that they can develop an appetite for learning that exists long after their time at school.
For us, homework is never punitive but rather an opportunity to think deeply, prepare and consolidate understanding. The effort pupils put into homework will be highly valued and recognised by their teachers but we hope that our pupils develop intrinsic motivation to learn, coming to regard homework as an important part of their educational development. We believe that homework tasks should be accessible to all of the pupils concerned, not merely those fortunate enough to have a well-resourced home.
Please read our Homework Policy (below) for specific information relating to how and when homework will be set.
