At Stopsley High School, we recognise the importance of homework as a method of both consolidating prior learning and preparing for new learning.
Homework encourages self-development and helps develop skills to manage time effectively.
Homework related to learning during school time is important and helps our students’ become independent learners.
Homework gives students an opportunity to reinforce the skills they have learnt in the classroom and prepare for future learning.
Students who complete regular homework don't just perform better at school and during exams, they learn broader life skills and associate hard work with long term rewards.
Research shows that students who complete homework regularly make at least 5 months of additional progress each year.
Each tutor group in Years 7, 8 and 9 has a personalised homework timetable; these can be viewed below. Year 10 and 11 students also have a homework timetable that can be viewed below.
Each Key Stage 3 homework task should take the students between 20 and 30 minutes to complete and 45 minutes to 1 hour for English, maths and science.
Each Key Stage 4 homework task should take the students between 45 minutes to 1 hour to complete.
Students will be given at least one week to complete each task and submit it to their teacher.
Details of the task and how it needs to be submitted will be posted on Satchel:One on the day the homework task is set and explained to the students during their lesson.
If your child needs support, they must speak to or email their teacher before the deadline.
If your child does not have a quiet place to work at home, they can go to the Homework Club after school.
It is the expectation that students will complete the homework set by each of their teachers; if it is not
