Harris Academies
All Academies in our Federation aim to transform the lives of the students they serve by bringing about rapid improvement in examination results, personal development and aspiration.

HomeWork

Homework:

  • As of this academic year, the school is launching a new homework policy. The emphasis being on self-quizzing and developing students’ long-term memory. The new linear GCSE and A-Level specifications has meant that students need to develop these skills so that the knowledge ‘sticks’. It is more important than ever that students are regularly revising lesson material independently at home.

The new homework expectation comprises of three parts:

1.         Reading – 30 minutes per night

2.         Self-Quizzing in practice journals – one page per subject each night

3.         Technology apps in maths and science to supplement self-quizzing (Tassomai and XIL) *specified year groups only

To optimise the effectiveness of self-quizzing, pupils must write out knowledge from memory and must not copy. Your child will have extensive training in school as how to do their self-quizzing. Your child will be expected to bring in their practice journal and knowledge organsier every day to school in their bags. Learning Guides will check the quantity of homework in practice journals and classroom teachers will check the quality of homework in lessons.
