Homework Statement

Learning beyond the classroom is a vital part of ensuring that our students succeed. It helps teachers to maximise the learning time in class, and gives students the opportunity to extend and deepen their understanding.

Students across the school are set a variety of tasks to complete outside of lessons. These will be set at a level appropriate to their age and their standard of attainment.

Students in the Secondary phase will record homework tasks in their planner, and use this to ensure that they complete the relevant work on time. The quantity set will vary according to the academic schedule, and will be complemented by ongoing revision and responses to teachers' feedback. Altogether, students in KS3 should expect to be completing around an hour per night, and in KS4 students should expect to be completing a minimum of 90 minutes per night.

If students are having difficulty completing homework, they should speak to their class teacher at the earliest possible opportunity. If parents have any questions regarfding homework, please email homework@prendergast-vale.com and we will aim to respond to your query within 24 hours.
