Home Learning Timetables

Introduction to homework

Home Learning adds another year of education. Research has shown that over the 5 years of secondary school, students can add another year’s worth of learning if they maximise on home learning opportunities set across Key Stage 3 and 4. This is why we take home learning seriously as it offers students a real chance to enhance what happens in the classroom.  Our main way to set and monitor home learning is through ShowMyHomework (SMHW), operated by SatchelOne. Teachers set homework, with details of a task and a deadline, monitor its submission and then update a grade-book, which can be seen by all those who can access account details. For learners and their parents/carers, a free app is available to be used on home devices. The SMHW system helps learners and their parents/carers know what exactly needs doing for which subject and teacher, improve time-management and personal organisation by using the deadlines to manage workload and monitor the outcomes of homework once it has been submitted. It is also possible to message staff on SMHW if assistance is needed over a homework task.
Since our return in September 2020, we have slowly increased the expectation with regard to home learning, conscious that some initial adjustment time was necessary after the summer term of 2020. We now expect students to be back into good learning routines and that they take home learning opportunities seriously. We know that it:
  • Involves parents/carers and keep them informed about the learning of students
  • Helps with personal skills, such as time-planning
  • Develops students’ capacity to cope with independent learning, so important for the demands of GCSE, consolidating classroom learning
  • Prepares students effectively for the routines needed for successful study and revision for GCSEs

Year 7 Homework Timetable

Please find below the scheduled homework timetable for all Year 7 classes. In addition to those homeworks listed below, students are also expected to spend 1hr per week on their Maths homework (in Maths the homework will be issued at the start of a topic and collected at the end of the topic). French homeworks noted below should take around ½hr to complete. English (which will fall on ONE of the days below), RE, Science, History, Computing and Geography should take around 1hr to complete. Therefore every student should spend on average 1hr per night on homework. Music and Art & Design Technology homeworks match an extended unit of work and are set once per half term. PE has no homework commitment but does expect each child to attend PE lessons with full kit. Students can expect that there may be additional homework, around assessment times for example.

Year 10 Homework Timetable

Please find below the homework timetable for all Year 10 classes. The year group is sometimes split into large 2 groups (Padua and Lisbon) for Science, RE and PE. In English and Maths, students are in sets across the whole school cohort. There are also 2 option groups which are 10V and 10W. The expectation is that students spend a minimum of 2 hours per fortnight on English, Maths and Science and 1 hour 45 minutes per fortnight on RE and option subjects, with the exception of French, which requires up to 2 hours of homework time per week. For Art & Design Technology and Computer Science, attendance to out-of-hours support time is expected for most homeworks during the completion of coursework. Most homework setting dates are listed below, but in addition, students are expected to spend 1hr per week on their Maths homework (in Maths the homework will be issued at the start of a topic and collected at the end of the topic).
