Homework Timetable

Homework guidance:

Home learning is an integral part of the curriculum. The nature of the tasks varies from subject to subject and is set according to the student’s ability and the departmental scheme of work. Homework tasks are recorded by Students in the Student Planner and parents are asked to sign the Student Planner weekly. Tutors will regularly monitor and sign the Student Planner. Students are expected to meet homework deadlines. At Altwood School we strongly encourage the active support of parents in ensuring homework is completed on time. Completion of regular homework helps students’ academic development and has a positive impact on their overall achievement and progress.
