* consolidate work done in class.
* provide preparation for new lessons.
* encourage habits of independent study.
* allow parents to judge how well their child is progressing.
The amount of homework given varies according to the pupil’s age and the subjects being studied.
There will be an increase in quantity, complexity and time needed for completion of homework as pupils progress through the year groups.
All pupils will be issued with a Diary/Planner at the beginning of each session.
They will be required to use this to note homework issued to them and to indicate its completion.
Parents and staff may use the Diary/Planner as a means of communicating concerns or achievement in the area of class work or homework.
