Homework

Challenging, relevant and meaningful homework is an integral part of your learning and progress.

How to succeed:

  • record all homework in your planner on the day it was set, including the subject, task description and due date
  • complete all homework on time and to the best of your ability
  • if you’ve missed a lesson, see your teacher to find out what homework was set and when it is due

You’ll be challenged by teachers and tutors if you haven’t done your homework
