Working independently is an essential skill for success in school, exams and life. At Park, we develop this through the provision of our full curriculum being accessible remotely to ensure that all students can access learning at any time and revisit their learning to master it. We expect students to work at home as well as in school.
Homework is a significant way through which we increase students’ Understanding and Mastery of content and skills, and raise standards.
The expectations of new exam syllabuses and a move to terminal examinations in all subjects over the next three years, means that students must be supported to consolidate, review and revise learning outside of lessons in order to fully master the knowledge and skills they require.
Homework is a vital part of this.
Students are more successful in school when parents take an active interest in their homework — it shows students that what they do is important.
How can you support your child:
If your child has forgotten some facts or how to solve a maths problem, there will always be a YouTube video on it that you can watch together.
