Homework Policy

We at King Arthur’s believe that homework plays a key role in developing the personal and academic skills of our students.

  • It reinforces and deepens understanding and learning that has taken place in the classroom.
  • It develops students’ skills in independent learning, a key life skill.
  • It develops their skills in organisation and time management.
  • It allows teachers to give positive feedback and identify the strengths of their students and any areas where further development may be targeted to ensure maximum progress.

Research has shown that regular homework over 5 years of secondary education equates to the impact of one extra year in secondary school.

The expectation is that:

  • At KS3, subjects that teach students once per week are expected to set one 30 minute homework per half-term; subjects that teach students more frequently would be expected to set one 30 minute homework per fortnight.
  • At KS4, every subject should set one 30-45 minute homework approximately per week.

The nature of the homework may vary from subject to subject. In subjects such as Mathematics and Modern Languages, small but regular homework is the most effective method of practising skills, whereas in subjects such as Art fewer but larger project based tasks are more effective.

The school will endeavour to support students with the completion of homework in the following ways:

  • Issuing all students with a homework diary to help them organise their time.
  • Ensuring students understand the expectations of the tasks set.
  • Giving students support materials where appropriate.
  • Making available facilities in school, such as Homework Club, where additional help can be given.
  • Providing lunchtime sessions with Heads of Department on a weekly basis to ensure completion of work.

We appreciate that parents/carers can also play an important part in supporting students with their homework. There are some helpful tips for parents at the following website:

We hope that homework is something that provides an enjoyable part of a student’s learning and helps to develop them into independent young people.
