At Holy Trinity we want our pupils to strive to be the best that they can be. As part of our curriculum we want to develop our pupils to be resilient, responsible, resourceful, reflective and always ready to learn. Developing confident, creative and independent young people that will be ready to compete in the modern world, is a key facet behind what we do.
Homework will focus on developing a thirst and love for learning beyond the classroom, whilst also developing independent learners. Homework also plays an important role in retrieval practice and pupils ability to store knowledge in their long term memory. We want homework at Holy Trinity to provide opportunities for pupils to develop knowledge and key skills required for success at the end of KS4 and life after school.
At Key stage 3 homework will include:
- Revision for low stake tests
- Flipped learning i.e. research for a new topic
- Independent homework projects
- Reading is also an integral part of homework and all pupils should be encouraged to read for at least 20 minutes every evening.
In Years 10 and 11, pupils will be set traditional homework to support their studies and preparation for GCSE’s and Technical Awards. This will be set frequently and at the discretion of the subject teacher.
As we value homework, pupils will be rewarded for exemplary efforts using the behaviour for learning system. Failure to complete homework will result in consequences.
