Charlton School

At Charlton School we view homework as a tool to support and enhance student learning. Homework should support a student’s learning and prepare them to work independently. This encourages students to be organised and resilient, skills which are a vital part of the curriculum. Homework also allows parents to have an active role in their child’s education.

At Charlton School we believe homework should serve at least one of the following purposes: to consolidate learning from a specific lesson or topic, to prepare students for new learning or to independently reflect on their learning from a lesson or topic.

Homework will be set using the online platform, Satchel One. The site can be accessed by students and parents/carers through

Revision as Homework
