At Charlton School we view homework as a tool to support and enhance student learning. Homework should support a student’s learning and prepare them to work independently. This encourages students to be organised and resilient, skills which are a vital part of the curriculum. Homework also allows parents to have an active role in their child’s education.
At Charlton School we believe homework should serve at least one of the following purposes: to consolidate learning from a specific lesson or topic, to prepare students for new learning or to independently reflect on their learning from a lesson or topic.
Homework will be set using the online platform, Doddle. The site can be accessed by students and parents/carers through https://www.doddlelearn.co.uk/app/login.
The frequency of homework will depend on the key stage. It is advised that:
- For KS3 students 1 piece of homework will be set a fortnight for each subject area
- For KS4 students 1 piece of homework will be set a week for each subject area
