Homework

Homework is designed  to support learning.  We aim to engage our learners with appropriate knowledge and develop skills to promote curiosity, questioning and understanding that prepares them all for their next steps. Homework may be set to promote research, to develop skills or to secure knowledge (core homeworks) in addition students should read their reading book at least two evenings a week for at least 20 minutes to support their Time for success experience.

Core Homework

We have identified the core knowledge for each subject and produced Knowledge organisers.  A Knowledge organiserarranges all the most vital, useful and powerful knowledge on a page of A3 or A4 that is broken down into small bitesize topics.

It is recommended that if students are struggling to recall some elements of their work they should increase the amount of time they spend on it. The timetable below identifies the day that students should be working on a subject at home:

*Please note that the day identified on the timetable may not be the day that students are given the homework

Additional homework will be recorded in the student planner, as appropriate to ensure that students are fully supported to make the best possible progress. We take homework seriously at Greenfield and so not doing homework is likely to lead to a sanction. If the homework is not understood students should ask for support.
