Homework is an important part of College life at All Saints Catholic College and all pupils are expected to do it regularly.
Our Mission Statement emphasises our aim to ensure that all pupils fulfil their ambitions and exceed their expectations. The provision of regular, rich, relevant homework tasks, appropriate to their needs and to the demands of the curriculum is considered to be an essential part of the entitlement of all our pupils. The prime purposes of homework must be to enhance the learning opportunities for each pupil, to support their academic progress, to enrich the teaching and learning process, and to foster the development of personal and individual study skills.
• All homework is now set on Show My Homework: showmyhomework this enables parents, teachers and pupils to monitor and track homework assignments on an easy to use online system.
• Pupils and parents will be given individual login information and guidance in September.
• A School Journal is also issued to all pupils that may also be used to record homework when necessary. Pupils and their parents receive information and advice on its correct usage.
If problems arise then we would ask you to contact your child’s Head of Year or write any comments in their Journal. Journals are checked weekly by Form Tutors to ensure your child is receiving and recording homework on a regular basis.
The College subscribes to a number of elearning websites to support our pupils, eg MyMaths.co.uk which is also very popular with pupils. Sometimes homework is set requiring pupils to use these online sites.
If it is not possible for pupils to use them at home, we can make arrangements for access to ICT suites in College outside task hours so no-one is at a disadvantage.
