Homework is an important part of the Teaching and Learning provision at Teddington School. Research indicates that the impact of homework can be up to 8 months of additional progress and we encourage students to consolidate and extend their in class learning at home.
Homework activities will vary in different departments and may be one-off pieces of work, or longer projects. An average expectation for homework would be:
- KS3 Core subjects: up to 1 hour per subject per week
- KS3 Non-core subjects: up to 1 hour every fortnight
- GCSE (KS4) students should expect one piece of homework every week from every subject.
All homework will be set via the class Team on Microsoft Teams. Students are expected to hand in their homework on time and at the required standard. Teachers will follow the school’s behaviour policy where homework is not submitted and use the rewards system to celebrate positive contributions.
Teachers will assess homework in different ways depending on the nature of work and department policy. Some examples of how homework may be assessed are through peer marking, self-assessment, teacher assessment, group work or through automatic online marking.
