At Carlton Bolling, we believe that homework is an integral part of the learning process for our students.
Homework reinforces learning that has taken place during school time, and develops independence and resilience. Homework also improves revision habits that are important in preparation for examinations and promotes self-discipline as the responsibility of needing to meet deadlines will impact school work and beyond.
Research from the Education Endowment Foundation tells us that students who regularly complete homework, make high levels of progress.
We all have our part to play in this, and have the following expectations:
• Parents/carers will encourage and support their child with homework tasks.
• Teachers will provide regular opportunities to extend learning beyond the classroom.
• Students will be independent by completing homework and coursework or project work including reading outside of school.
