Homework

At The Long Eaton School, a rigorous homework regime is fostered for the following reasons:

 

  • The completion of regular tasks at home encourages the development of positive learning routines, developing the skills, confidence and motivation needed to study effectively on their own.
  • Setting time aside for study involves a personal commitment to school and academic endeavour.
  • Homework extends the time available for the curriculum and allows additional reading.It assists in meeting the needs of the coursework requirements of external exams.
  • The completion and monitoring of homework encourages a partnership between parents and school.
  • Regular completion of homework is seen to be valued.

Setting Homework

 

In order to develop study routines, an increasing scale of homework will be set as follows:-

Per evening:

  • Year 7 - 1 hour
  • Years 8 & 9 - 1 hour 30 minutes
  • Years 10 & 11 - 2 hours

In Year 12/13 the amount of homework done by students outside lessons will depend on their individual programmes, but should be at least 3 hours per night, in addition to study time provided within the curriculum time.

   

Homework sessions are available in the library from 3.10-4.00pm.
