As an Academy we regard traditional homework to now take the form of ‘Prep’. In other words work that is set to be completed outside of the classroom that needs to be done to prepare for the learning that is to come.
Prep will be issued on a regular basis based on the needs of the future learning. All staff in the relevant subjects will set Prep and record it in show my homework. Revision may be set as prep as it is preparing for an upcoming exam, and will consist of a structured activity.
Tasks will be between 15 – 30 minutes in length for years 7-8, and 30 – 45 minutes for years 9-11. A minimum of 1 hour for Sixth formers will be set.
The completion of Prep is vital to ensure that students are ready for the learning that will be coming up in class; therefore students that do not complete prep will fall under the Academies behaviour for learning protocols.
Prep will be issued on the following basis:
Years 7 and 8
Prep will be set in only the following subjects:
- English, Maths, Science, History, Geography, French, Spanish, RE, ICT
- All other subjects will offer after-school extra-curricular activities linked to their subject area.
- Prep will be set for all subjects apart from core PE and PSHE
