Homework System

  • A timetable showing homework for weeks A and B  will be on MILK.  Subjects which are studied more than 2 hours per week will have homework every week.  Other subjects will have it  every other week.
  • Teachers will record homework on MILK.
  • Homework is set to consolidate or develop work done in class, following schemes of work.
  • Students will be bringing their books home more regularly, so you will see an evaluation of their work and their responses to  marking.
  • The Academy will monitor the setting and completion of work, checking its quality and frequency to ensure consistency.
  • Students will be expected to complete homework on time.
  • Parents/carers will be sent a text if a homework is missed so they can support to ensure it is completed.
  • If the homework is still not completed, an after school  homework catch-up session will be organised in the Library. Parents/carers will be informed of this by text.


Knowledge Organisers

Knowledge organisers are a whole academy resource we have introduced to support long term learning.

All Knowledge organisers can be viewed and downloaded here. They are filed by term, year group and faculty/subject. The help guide and video will support effective use of knowledge organisers at home and in class. 

The deFerrers Trust - Knowledge Organisers

Form tutors and subject teachers will work with students to enable them to become efficient and expert users of knowledge organisers during the Autumn Term. In Year 7 and Year 8 all students will be provided with a knowledge organiser file for storing the knowledge organisers they will be given by their subject teachers and in Years 9 to 11 students can access their knowledge organisers on the link above using their ipads. All year groups will be given a knowledge organiser homework book which they must bring to the Academy every day.

Mrs Morris (English Faculty) has produced the following video to support students and parents/carers.
