New Homework structure for Year 7 and 8

Dear Parents / Carers

We are making a change to the homework structure for Year 7 and Year 8 pupils beginning next term. After evaluation of the current system including parent consultation at our recent parent forum, we realised improvements could, and should be made. Senior leaders have looked at models used in other successful schools as well as reading current education research and theories around homework.

Please read the attached letter detailing the changes which will be implemented in January.

Thank you for your continued support.
