Online Homework - Epraise
Increasingly students are expected to make use of online revision tools and an online planner ‘Epraise’ to assist in the organization and completion of homework. Students may be required to complete homework on-line, with questions, instructions or project brief for the homework found on Epraise. There is daily access to school computers at lunchtimes and after school. Through Epraise, parents and students are able to see homework tasks that have been set, and when they are due for completion.
In addition, there is often ongoing independent work that students can do in homework time if a specific task is not set. For example, students are expected to be reading books of their own choice regularly and recommended title lists are held by English teachers. The MyMaths website is available for additional independent study and has work packages suitable for students at every age and level. In year 7 students will participate in the accelerated reading scheme which aims to promote reading and literacy skills.
