Timetable for Years 7, 8 and 9 Home Learning
Key Stage 3
English, Maths, Science and MFL set up to 1 hour of home learning each week. History, Geography and RE set up to 30 minutes of home learning every other week. Other subjects, which only see the students once per week, are not expected to set home learning every week but will set a minimum of two pieces per term; one of these will be an extended piece of work set over several weeks. For D&T, 1-2 pieces will set per rotation of specialisms. Teachers should try to keep to the agreed timetable, although there must be flexibility for such things as projects, etc.
Key Stage 4
The timetable for Key Stage 4 is based on one piece of work per week per subject. Teachers should aim to set work which will take approximately 1 – 1.5 hours. When determining the deadlines for pieces of home learning, the demands of coursework should also be considered. It is therefore preferable that students be given a minimum of 48 hours to complete longer tasks; this will encourage them to plan their work and balance the demands of each subject.
