At Purbrook Park, we believe that Homework is important to:

  • reinforce positive attitudes towards learning
  • encourage and develop independent learning (self-organisation and self-discipline)
  • broaden and extend the school curriculum
  • give opportunities for pupils to develop their creative thinking
  • develop home/school partnerships
  • prepare students for life-long learning

What are the KS3 Homework tasks?

  • One subject task set per term which runs over several weeks
  • Each task consists of 3-4 hours work (Foundation) or 4-5 hours work (Core)
  • Differentiated through outcome
  • Focuses on developing independent study skills
  • Languages set short fortnightly homeworks instead
  • Maths set short weekly homeworks instead
  • All Homeworks are on the school website and available to see through INSIGHT
