Homework expectations and timetables

Every student at St Catherine’s should expect to receive 2 or 3 pieces of Home Learning each day. They type of Home Learning will be dependent on the subject and curriculum at the time. We expect Home Learning to take progressively longer as students move through the school and so in Year 7 a piece of Home Learning may take 20-30 minutes and by Year 10 and 11 between 45 minutes to an hour. This of course will vary depending on the nature of the work and the demands of the curriculum at the time.  Work contributing to end of unit assessments at KS3 or Controlled Assessments at KS4 may take longer on occasion but equally there will be times when Home Learning will take less time.

If as a parent or carer you have any issues or concerns regarding HL then please contact your daughter’s subject teacher or Form Leader.
