It is the school’s policy that homework is set for all its students through the subject departments. We believe that if properly planned and implemented it can play a valuable role in the education of all children. It has value in providing for the student an opportunity to practice independently skills learnt in the classroom; it allows more time for the teacher to conduct those activities in class which need his/her presence; habits of independent study can be encouraged and developed, work which is not substantially complete can be finished, and parents/carers can be involved and interested in what the child brings home from school.
We emphasize, therefore, the importance of doing homework well. The need to establish a regular homework routine, to do the work early in the evening rather than later, and in a quiet room, are practices we also regard as essential.
Detailed information about the curriculum and subject syllabuses may be inspected at the school by arrangement with the Headteacher or the Deputy Headteacher.
