Home Learning

Sherwood Academy is committed to providing activities for students to do outside of lesson time in order to embed and extend knowledge and understanding, which leads to higher levels of achievement.

Students in Year 11 (Key Stage 4) are expected to do at least one hour of homework per night (on average) and this will increase as they work through any coursework or exam preparation. Students who do not complete homework are usually issued with a detention from their class teacher.

How do we record homework?

Students are expected to record homework in their Student Planner - this is the responsibility of the student. This is signed and checked by the form tutor each week and we expect students to have their planner signed at home once per week also.
