Aims and objectives

Homework is an essential part of your work at school

Why do we have homework?

  • To encourage you to learn to study independently
  • To help you develop perseverance, self discipline and initiative
  • To allow you to practice skills learned in the classroom
  • To help you learn about more topic areas and to make better progress
  • To enable classwork to concentrate on those activities in which you need more support from your teachers
  • To open up areas of study and to make possible the use of materials and sources of information that are not accessible in the classroom
  • To involve parents and other adults in your work to allow you to work in depth and to follow up areas of interest outside the time constraints of lessons
