Homework

The Core Purpose of the Trafalgar School at Downton is that all students achieve their best possible academic and personal success. This cannot be achieved unless students fully engage with all aspects of Homework. The School’s Mission Statement makes it clear that our students will be the source of their own success and homework will form an essential part of this independence.

At The Trafalgar School we value homework which enriches and deepens the learning experience for our students. We aim to set homework which consolidates the learning taking place in classrooms and builds independence. We want students to be curious and creative as well as having a strong set of core skills that will prepare them to learn and to achieve but also for the world beyond The Trafalgar School.

Our philosophy is that homework from years 7 to 11 should be based around deepening understanding, retention of knowledge and revision/preparation for assessment; forming part of a five year preparation for GCSEs.

We are currently updating our homework subject links.

For years 7 to 9, each subject will produce an assessment guide which will outline what the assessment will be for that period of learning – some subjects will work in terms but others may work across two terms, half a year, or even across a whole school year, depending on how assessments/units of work are organised and curriculum time.
