As outlined in our whole school  homework policy (PDF 125KB), homework is an important part of your learning. At the Merewether HS centre it is managed and monitored by:

Goals

  • Homework is valued and supported as an important adjunct to student learning, high achievement and to consolidate learning in the classroom.
  • Homework assists in the process of communication between teachers, students and parents/caregivers
  • Homework includes set work, daily revision, preparation for future lessons, assignments and study for exams
  • Homework assists students to develop effective time management skills.

Procedures

  • Homework will be allocated with consideration to students' other commitments.
  • It is recognised that language skills are best developed through regular practice.
  • Homework is purposeful, engaging, challenging and relevant; it will consist of task completion and consolidation of knowledge, skills and understandings developed in the classroom. This may involve practice, preparation and extension.
  • All set homework will be validated and marked promptly with appropriate feedback being given to students.
  • Support will be provided to students having difficulties with homework.

Home and school links

  • Parents and caregivers support students in their homework commitments.
  • Parents and caregivers are encouraged to communicate with teachers.
  • In the first instance, teachers will notify parents and caregivers where students fail to complete homework. Where students consistently fail to complete homework the supervisor will contact parents and caregivers.
