At Haughton Academy, the purpose of homework is to further embed knowledge and skills.

Each teacher sets homework assignments that are appropriate for their subject, with the aim of developing subject specific knowledge, recall or skills. This is made clear when set, along with the success criteria for the assignment.

When work is set, each pupil is given two school weeks before the final hand in date. The two-week cycle ties in with our timetable and allows pupils time to ask for help and guidance if they need it, while developing their organisational and independent study skills.

We expect pupils to attempt the work we set and complete it to a high standard.

Part of an assignment may also be for the pupil to self-assess their work. In this case, the assignment is split into two parts; first to complete the task and second to bring the work in for review by the teacher before being given a mark scheme/success criteria to take away, self-assess and improve their work.

Pupils should expect to spend the following amount of time on their homework:

  • Year 7 and 8: One hour of work per subject over two weeks
  • Year 9, 10 and 11: Up to two hours of work per subject over two weeks
