At the Lancaster Academy we firmly believe that homework enhances student learning, improves achievement and can develop effective study skills, time-management and independence. As such, it is an integral part of the curriculum.
Students of all abilities at The Lancaster Academy will be given equal opportunities to access, complete and receive feedback on work set to complete at home, thus enabling each individual to achieve their personal best. To support your child in completing their homework a study club runs every day from 3.05-4pm. 2 members of staff are on hand to support your child and provide a quiet, purposeful space in which to complete their homework.
Further support is found on the Show My Homework programme, an online tool which we use to set homework. This online calendar will allow you to keep track of your child’s homework by seeing the details of the tasks your child has been set. You will be provided with login details to your personal account, ready-linked to your child’s homework calendar.
