Homework

Homework Timetable 2017-2018

  • All homework will be set during lesson time and on SIMS - this can be viewed by downloading the SIMS App onto a portable device such as a mobile phone or IPad.
  • Parents will be able to view all homework set and when homework is handed in via the Parent App.
  • Pupils will usually be given a week to complete homework unless it is a quick learning homework.
  • It is expected that all homework will be completed to the highest standard. Non-completion of homework will be recorded for parents to see plus the consequence given within each department.
  • Any extraordinary reasons for non-completion of homework will need to be supported by a parental letter or email.
  • Homework days will depend on the subject and teacher. Homework days should be written on the front of exercise books with both the day and the week number. E.g. Week 1 Monday or Week 2 Tuesday
