Homework is an integral part of Academy life and a vital part of your child’s learning. Working outside Academy hours is proven to improve and deepen understanding and develop the essential skills involved in learning independently: such as resilience and initiative. At Churchfields Academy students will be set homework once per week by each subject to be completed as a minimum expectation. All homework will be set using Show My Home Work, which allows parents and students to view all HW and resources at any time from any device: please contact the school if you have any questions about SMHW or cannot access it for any reason.
We take a clear line on non-completion of homework. If the work has not been handed in by the deadline then the student will be given an opportunity to complete their homework with the support of their class teacher.. If this is not completed then they will have an opportunity to complete the homework with the Director of Faculty. If for any reason this is not completed then they will be placed in senior leadership detention with a member of the Senior Leadership Team on Friday 3pm – 4pm.
ICT and reference facilities are available in the LRC every lunchtime and after school until 4pm and in most faculties at appointed times. There is access to the internet and the school email system for each child to help with completion of homework. Staff members are of course more than happy to help should a student have an issue with their homework.
We actively seek parental support to ensure that homework is completed on time and to a good standard. You can check all homework issued and whether it has been completed by looking at SMHW regularly.
