Homework

At East Point Academy, we strive to provide the very best learning opportunities for all our students; therefore, we place great value in providing stimulating and purposeful independent learning activities, in class and for homework. Homework is an independent learning activity, which contributes greatly to the educational progress of your child.  The ability to work independently is not only a life skill but is a crucial part of the learning process.   

All subject teachers will regularly set your child short tasks to complete independently.  To make sure that the amount of work set is spread across the week, we have produced homework timetables, which you can download below, identifying when homework is due to be set.  This work will relate closely to your child’s current lesson content and helps them to practise and embed skills or to learn and recall specific subject knowledge.

Students are expected to record homework instructions and deadlines in their planners in order to help organise their work and inform parents or carers of the tasks they are expected to complete.

Students should spend between 20 and 30 minutes on each subject. From time to time they may receive more than this. They should aim to read for 30 minutes per day, to supplement their reading at school, particularly if reading wasn't carried out at form time that day.

Parents and carers can support their child by monitoring homework set and discussing family and other commitments in advance so students can meet deadlines and develop good habits in planning and preparation for out-of-school learning.

Computer access is available to all students in the library until 4.30pm Monday to Thursday and until 4pm on Friday.
