As students move into the examination phase of their education, expectations around homework change.
The core subjects (English, Maths and Science) set a minimum of one homework per week, lasting between 45 – 60 minutes.
The foundation subjects, which students have selected for their options, set a minimum of one homework per fortnight, lasting between 45 – 60 minutes.
Non-examined subjects (PE, PSHE and RS) do not routinely set homework.
Additional homework may be set and there is an expectation that students will be routinely reinforcing their learning through revision and the use of GCSEPod and My Maths.
All homework in Destiny School is shared with students via Google Classroom. Students will be a member of a Google Classroom for each of their subjects. Homework will sometimes be submitted electronically via the Google Classroom ‘turn in’ process, and on other occasions be submitted by hand.
Students are also required to make a brief note of the homework they are set in their student diaries, so this can be easily tracked by their parents and their tutor.
