HOMEWORK

Homework is an integral part of the partnership between the school and parents. It develops the student’s independent learning in a non-school environment. The homework policy encourages students to plan and prioritise so that they are able to achieve their best.

Homework has several purposes:

  • to promote self discipline, responsibility and organisational skills,
  • to provide opportunities for review and practice,
  • to prepare for the next lesson through obtaining background material,
  • to expand the curriculum to allow students to learn in "real life" situations i.e., outside of school,
  • to provide extension opportunities for students to pursue individual projects,
  • to provide opportunities for parents to be involved with their child’s learning and
  • to provide an opportunity for reflection.

Parents can positively influence their children’s attitudes to learning. They can actively support their child in many ways by:

  • giving advice and encouragement,
  • jointly planning to develop a workable home schedule which accommodates family activities,
  • providing a suitable place for homework to be done,
  • regularly consulting the homework diary where their child notes down their homework,
  • checking that homework is done.
