Key Stage 3 Homework Guidance

The Academy aims to promote a positive and consistent approach to homework. Subjects will set a variety of tasks to ensure that pupils are able to use their learning from lessons effectively and prepare them for forthcoming learning opportunities. As such, the purpose of homework is to:

  • continue to set high expectations for all students and their learning
  • foster pupils intellectual curiosity, scholarship and enjoyment of learning
  • develop the responsibility, confidence and self-discipline needed to study independently.

All pupils are expected to read for 20-30 minutes at home as part of the Accelerated Reading Programme.

If homework is not completed and deadlines are not met then pupils may be sanctioned as per the behaviour guidance of the Academy.
