At Teddington School, it is important to us that all students complete homework set by their teacher. Homework is an important part of the Teaching and Learning provision at Teddington School.

The Education Endowment Foundation toolkit shows that completing good quality homework helps students make 5 months’ extra progress within a year.

Many students at our school are involved in a range of extra-curricular activities and indeed this is encouraged. This means that students can struggle to find time to do both their activities and spend sufficient time on their homework which can lead to extra stress. Therefore, students should be given 5 nights to complete any homework task.  We offer a Homework Club in the Library from 15:00 – 16:00, Monday - Thursday, for pupils who request it, and for any pupils who are struggling to complete homework at home.

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 fortnigh
  • KS4: up to 1 hour per subject per week

Homework for Year 7-9, 11 and 13 will be set via the class Team channel on Microsoft Teams.

Homework for Year 10 and 12 will be set via Satchel One.

Students are expected to hand in their homework on time and at the required standard. Teachers will follow the school’s behavior 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 the work. Some examples of how homework may be assessed are through peer marking, self-assessment, teacher assessment, group work or through automatic online marking.
