Homework will be set and marked regularly.

Our aim is that all students at Bronte Girls’ Academy achieve their potential and we believe homework is a very important part of this. It encourages students to develop their organisational skills, independent thought processes and individual study skills to prepare them for life beyond school.

At Key Stage 3, the expectation is that pupils complete 5 to 7 hours of homework per week.

At Key Stage 4 the expectation is that pupils complete at least ten hours of homework per week.

For homework to be effective the academy needs parental co-operation. You can support your daughter by:

  • Checking her planner to see what homework has been set
  • Providing time and a quiet space for learning at home
  • Talking to her about what she is learning
  • Asking her to explain it to you
  • Helping and guiding her when needed
  • Making it part of her daily routine.

To help promote the daily routine of recording and planning homework pupils are issued with a planner. This will also be used to help communication between the academy and home.
