Homework

Homework teaches students to work independently and develop self-discipline, as well as encouraging students to take initiative and responsibility for completing a task.

Homework allows parents to have an active role in their child's education and helps them to evaluate their child's progress in close proximity.

 
 
  • Encourage students to develop the skills needed to learn independently

  • Develop self-discipline in work habits including working to deadlines

  • Consolidate, reinforce and extend the skills, knowledge and understanding developed in the classroom

  • Open up areas of study or sources of information that are not accessible in the classroom

  • Enable students to meet the demands of GCSE and other controlled assignments

  • Prepare students for school and public examinations

What is the purpose of homework at RFSS?

achievement.

​​Our approach to homework is based on research from the Education Endowment Foundation, which states that homework is:

  • Assisting students to develop skills and attitudes that they need for successful work place and lifelong learning

  • Supporting the development of: good organisation, time management and the confidence to think for oneself

  • Providing teachers with further evidence to ascertain how much of the work in class students have understood and can apply, so that they are better able to plan for progression
