Homework

Why Do We Set Homework?

Independent study is an integral part of the learning process at Christ's College. Students should have homework set on a regular basis that is meaningful and appropriate to their age and stage. This must be recorded on show my homework with a clear and appropriate deadline.

Homework is set in order to:

  • Consolidate, reinforce and extend what pupils know, understand and can do in the classroom.

  • Develop the essential independent study skills that will ensure that strong academic outcomes and success are achieved by all students.

  • Involve parents and carers in students’ learning.

  • Encourage students to develop the skills, confidence, motivation and self-discipline needed to study effectively as independent and life-long learners.

 

Homework Policy

Regularity Of Homework

The quantity of homework pupils will complete each week can vary depending on the curriculum time allocation for each subject, the age range of the pupils and the nature of the homework task. As a learning community, we believe it is essential that all homework tasks are meaningful and manageable for pupils. The emphasis is on the quality of homework rather than the quantity.  

Students in Years 7, 8 and 9 will receive up to 60 minutes of homework a week in core subjects and 30 minutes a week in all other subjects. The day this is set will vary for each class due to the way in which the school timetable has been constructed.  

In Years 10 and 11 all subjects will set 60 minutes of homework per week.
