We are currently reviewing the homework policy with a view to changing the way in which we approach homework in Key Stage 3. This process will involve a full review of the current procedure and the benefits of it. It will also include a consultation period with parents and students.
In the interim students will be set homework by subjects but they will not follow a rigid timetable as they have done in previous years. In Key Stage 3 students should receive 30 – 45 minutes homework for most subjects each week. This may include tasks such as research, completion of work, learning vocabulary or revising for a test. In Key Stage 4 students should receive 45 mins – 1hour homework per subject each week.
