“Homework is not an optional extra, but an essential part of a good education.”
-1999 White Paper, Excellence in Schools

Tasks set will fall into the following categories:

  • preparatory work for upcoming and new topics
  • extension work that builds on prior knowledge gained within the classroom
  • revision skills and ‘mastery’ of learning
  • provide opportunities for students to be independent
  • extended tasks that require students to demonstrate time-management and other organisational skills

Homework and home-learning tasks are not tasks that:

  • have no relevance to learning within the classroom
  • provide no value to the curriculum
  • are set for the sake of setting homework
