The tables below provide an overview of the amount/frequency of homework that pupils will be set at Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4.

Specific homework pieces are provided on the VLE. Topics within each subject will have a Topic Summary document (see example) on the VLE which will provide information on the topic and a list of homework pieces for the topic. These Topic Summaries will be provided by subjects as the VLE develops.

In addition to the key pieces in the Topic Summaries, revision, research tasks and questions will be set as per the school KS3 and KS4 Home Learning timetable.
