Homework

From Year 7 through to Year 13 we value homework as a means of developing independent learning skills.

All students will be given at least 2 pieces of homework every day. Each piece of homework should last for at least 40 minutes. Students are expected to write their homework in their learning journal. Parents are expected to check their learning journals each day and ensure that the homework is completed to a high standard. Students will be able to access their homework on Show My Homework. Therefore, there is no excuse for not completing it.

What happens if I don’t complete my homework?

Failure to complete homework will result in a one hour Homework Detention. Students will be issued with a sticker in their planner for a detention the following day. This means that it is the students’ responsibility to notify their parents about the detention.

Please note that students will also be given a detention for poor quality homework. Parents will be required to attend the academy for a meeting if their child is constantly in homework detention each night.
