Homework is an important part of the learning process and can significantly improve student outcomes. Students are expected to become increasingly responsible for their own learning, preparing them for further study. Homework at Bradon Forest School gives students the opportunity to review their learning, apply it to new challenging situations or give them the opportunity to extend their learning beyond what is delivered in the classroom.
At Bradon Forest each subject sets regular, high quality and curriculum linked homework learning tasks. We aim to challenge all learners to ‘think hard’ about the key knowledge and skills that form the curriculum. All teachers recognise that effort at home needs to be acknowledged and with this in mind we value high quality work using our reward system.
Class Charts is an online tool we use which allows students and parents to access homework tasks and resources on the internet. Teachers upload subject tasks to this homework app. We believe this supports both staff and parents in ensuring the learning opportunities available through completing homework properly are not missed by students. Parents can monitor the homework set and deadlines that are given. As a school we appreciate the importance of parental support and know that good communication allows parents to be actively involved in their child’s learning. With this in mind there are regular opportunities across the academic year for parent and student voice relating to the demands and challenges of homework.
