Homework will be set regularly throughout the year, the core subjects (Maths, English and Science) will usually set homework once a week with other subjects setting homework on a fortnightly basis. Your child’s teacher will make them aware of their usual homework day and they must record this information on the homework timetable page in their student planner. However, I am sure that you will appreciate that at times it may be more appropriate to set homework at a time other than the timetabled day.
The Sharples Student Planner also contains a homework contract which outlines the responsibilities of pupils, teachers and parents/carers relating to the completion of homework tasks. From September 2016 you will also be able to track your child’s homework online using ‘Show My Homework’ (click here).
