Harris Academy Greenwich Homework Policy

Purpose of Homework:

Homework is used as a tool for students to consolidate learning already acquired through the delivery of the curriculum. It provides an opportunity to overlearn topics, skills and knowledge to support long term memory - interleaving of both current and past learning to ensure skills and knowledge stick. Through the use of low stakes quizzing, teachers’ understanding of student learning is informed, supporting further planning for individuals.  


Homework expectations:

  1. Reading – 30 minutes per night
  2. Self-Quizzing in homework books (Flip and Fetch)
  3. Technology apps in maths and science to supplement self-quizzing (Hegarty Maths and Tassomai* ) *specified year groups only

  • Daily reading must be recorded in student ‘Reading logs’.
