We have a Homework Vision which explains why we believe homework is important for all students:

On their journey to excellence students have the right to homework which:

  • Provides rich and exciting learning opportunities

  • Prepares them to be active, independent, successful and enthusiastic lifelong learners.

  • Prepares them for life as responsible citizens in a diverse, modern society.

To achieve this we need to ensure that homework:

  • Provides students with opportunities to enrich their school-based learning

  • Promotes learning in the home which will complement learning at school, encouraging beneficial and effective partnerships between home and school

  • Consolidates and reinforces skills and understanding through regular practice in aspects of class work

  • Develops students' independence and interests

  • Encourages students in the management of their own time.
