All homework will be set to students using the Show My Homework website and app. All students and parents have access to this system.
Key Stage 4 Homework
The core subjects, English, maths, and science will set one piece of homework a week. In addition, the option subjects will also set one piece of homework each week. Each homework should be expected to take no more than 45 minutes.
There may be exceptions to these allocations in certain subject areas where homework may form part of an ongoing portfolio of work.
There may be slight variations in the timings of the homework each week. This is to ensure that the homework set is relevant to the work being completed in class.
Key Stage 3 Homework
In key stage 3 a homework schedule provides guidance on when a subject will set homework for students. Maths, English, Science and MFL all set homework each week. Other subjects will set homework fortnightly. Some subjects have chosen to set projects instead of weekly/fortnightly tasks. For Years 7, 8 and 9 this is shown through a project calendar so that projects are distributed over the year and guidance is provided by each subject area.
For all students, homework should not be set to be completed by the following day.
