KNOWLEDGE IS POWER
Homework is any work or activity which pupils are asked to do outside lesson time either in ‘Prep’, which takes place within the school day, or at home. It is part of the curriculum and an integral part of the SG Way strategy to maximise attainment in all subjects and year groups.
Regularly monitored and carefully thought out homework can make a valuable contribution to pupils learning. We have high academic expectations of all our pupils and homework and the independent skills it helps to develop have an important role in achieving this.
Evidence suggests that homework makes the greatest contribution to learning when tasks are designed to support progression in learning, there is consistent practice in setting, managing and feeding back on homework, and pupils and parents or carers are clear about what they need to do.
At St George’s we provide pupils with a large plastic wallet, purple pen, ruler, Knowledge Organiser, Maths Drill booklet and Literacy booklet at start of each Progress Period.
IN EVERY YEAR PUPILS COMPLETE HOMEWORK EVERY NIGHT
