We wish every student to achieve their full potential. Both homework and independent study support student progress and are a very important part of the learning process. Homework enhances student learning, improves achievement and develops pupils' study skills and as such is an integral part of the curriculum.
Homework is work that is set to be done outside of the timetabled curriculum. It contains an element of independent study in that it is not usually directly supervised by a teacher and is important in raising student achievement.
Not all homework is done at home, in fact for some students who find it hard to work at home, or for some tasks which may require resources (books, software, equipment) more readily available at school, it is necessary or desirable to carry out the task at school. Guidance time can be scheduled as a private reading/homework session for independent learning.
