All pupils are expected to do homework. The purpose of homework is to encourage pupils to work independently to complement and support work done in school, to develop their own learning and to involve parents positively in the learning process.

Each pupil has a Journal to help this process and parents are expected to inspect it regularly and use it as a means of communication with the teacher, when appropriate.

Some subjects use the VLE to set homework which can be accessed via the web site. Other subjects set homework on the “I am Learning” resource, again accessed by the web site.

Some homework set by all subjects for year 7 and 8 students will link directly to the books students study in English to support them in making links between literacy skills in English and across all subject areas.

The Maths department use MYmaths which is an IT based resource used to set and monitor homework.

The link below will open a table which shows a summary of the topics for homework for KS3. Details of the homework will be put on Show My Homework by the class teacher.
