Homework is any work or activity which students are asked to do outside lesson time either on their own or with parents or carers.
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.
