Homework is a vital part of a student's education, allowing the opportunity for consolidation of work done in school and for self-supported study at home. It may take many forms, as appropriate, including written work, research, learning, extended projects, practical projects and oral activities.

The Homework Timetable indicates which night each subject's homework is to be set; not by when it needs to be done. Your child’s teachers will decide when the homework is to be handed in. The structure of the timetable is designed to encourage KS3 students to plan their workload throughout the key stage, so that they become self-disciplined enough to approach GCSE coursework requirements in a positive way.

Here are the Homework Timetables for 2021-22:

Year 7 Homework Timetable

Year 8 and 9 Homework Timetable

Year 10 and 11 Homework Timetable

 

This year we are introducing a learning platform called Edulink to make sure that homework is more effective and accessible for all students. Each student has their own username and password to access Edulink, which is an online diary where all homework will be set by staff this year. This will mean that students only need to look in one place to know exactly what they need to do and when they need to do it!

 

All students have been shown how to use the system in their IT or Maths lessons and in tutor time. Teaching staff, support staff and LSAs have also been shown how to use the system so they can help any students who need it. There is a helpful guide for students below:

 

 

From Term 2, parents and carers will be given their own personal access to Edulink, more details will be available on the school website in the next few weeks.
