1 Homework is important because the evidence demonstrates that when it is set in a regular and meaningful manner it contributes to advances in student learning. So the setting of homework gives a learning advantage to our students. Students who do regular homework do, on average, 15% better than those who do not. Put another way, it can make half a National Curriculum Level or GCSE grade difference. Therefore students are disadvantaged if they are not regularly completing homework. As a school which cares passionately about the success of all our young people, homework can have a considerable impact on their learning and understanding. Top Tips for Successful Homework If possible have a set time and a place when homework is to be done. For some young people it will be as soon as they come in from school. Other families will make the time after the evening meal homework time. Having a regular slot helps students keep homework as a priority and organise their time well. Try and have a quiet place to do homework, with few distractions. It could be a bed room or a kitchen table. Show my Homework will outline what the homework task is and when it is due in. If students are unsure about the task they should speak to their teacher well in advance of the due date. Use Show my Homework to plan when to do homework. Teachers should be giving students time to get homework completed and therefore if you have regular evening events, a sport, youth club, cadets or whatever, it should be possible to build that around the programme. Parents/carers if your child is saying that they have no homework, do check on Show my Homework Show my Homework FAQ s Q: How do I get to the Show my Homework web site? Go to the main school website, scroll to the bottom of the page and click on the link. Q: What do I do once I get to the Show my Homework site?
