Homework is important. It consolidates learning and helps to create good study habits.
Students may be asked to read, preparation, revise or complete tasks. As a broad guide Year 7 students can expect four hours a week, rising to ten hours a week by Year 11.
How can parents help?
Play your part by providing an appropriate place for homework to be completed and establish a daily routine for when it is to be done. Check your child’s planner for homework set and sign the planner weekly, entering a comment if you wish.
Take a positive interest in homework and class work and encourage your child to read to help improve literacy and spelling, to research for additional information on current topics or to work on any on-going pieces of coursework.
