Homework

All homework is set on Firefly, our  VLE (Virtual Learning Environment) as well as being written in planners where appropriate. There is an app for students which allows them to receive notification of when homework is set. Parents can also download this app and ask their son/daughter to login on their device if they want reminders of when homework is set and messages sent to their child.

All new parents will receive a letter in September outlining how they can access the son/daughter's homework through the new Firefly Parent Portal. Students will continue to write any homework set in their planners. As you know students who fail to complete their homework are set detentions. We are not looking to change this in new academic year, but will be moving to a centralised system that will simplify the process for students and parents. When homework is not submitted or completed to an
appropriate standard, a one-hour detention will be set the same day. If homework is not submitted on more than one occasion then a two-hour Friday detention will be set. 

  
To complete homework effectively students will benefit from a table or desk to work at and quiet time away from other distractions. Homework club is also open to students after school and there are spaces to work in such as the library during lunchtime. Teachers are also very happy to talk to students individually if unclear.  With your support, we are confident that there will be no need for students to complete sanctions for missing or incomplete homework
