At Bluecoat Trent Academy we believe that homework is an important part of our school curriculum and the learning process. Therefore we aim to set challenging work or activities which students do outside of lesson time, either on their own or with parents and carers that is designed to extend their learning of key skills and important information and embed factual knowledge.

Homework would not normally be set for the following day to allow students time to complete the tasks but there are clubs that run both at lunchtime and after school that afford students the opportunity to complete these tasks using the school’s ICT facilities.

  • Plan their time and develop confidence in their learning
  • Develop independent learning skills, to use now and in their future life
  • Improve retention and recall of key facts in preparation for assessments
