The purpose of homework:
- To encourage students to develop the skills needed for independent learning.
- To consolidate, reinforce and extend the skills, knowledge and understanding developed in class.
- To enable students to develop essential time management and organisational skills.
Wright Robinson College recognises that homework is crucial and directly linked to the academic development of students. As a result we have a strong homework policy that is followed from Year 7 to Year 11. This system is outlined (pg 7). The core purpose of this is to ensure that students are reminded of the importance of homework and also to keep you fully informed. This system also allows us to identify students who need more support and guidance.
As a College we understand that young people have activities outside of school and as a result we provide all staff and students with a homework timetable. This ensures that students receive roughly an equal amount of homework to help with time management.
