100% Homework

100% Homework is our commitment as an Academy to ensure that homework is set consistently in all subject areas and that it is purposeful in helping pupils with their learning.

100% Homework is also our aim to engage parents more in their child’s learning by asking them to help quiz and test students at home. Schools and parents have a shared priority to deliver the best outcomes for their children and it is through regular communication and working together that we can ensure our home learning is purposeful and having an impact.

‘There is an established link between the home learning environment at all ages and children’s performance at school’ (Education Endowment Foundation). Therefore we expect all students to spend a minimum amount of time on homework each evening and parents/carers to support with this. 

Whilst homework will continue to be based on retrieval practice, we are currently in consultation with staff and students to develop a new policy to make best use of out Horizons iPads.
