Homework at Risedale
Risedale staff have high expectations and believe that success is possible for all. Learning beyond the classroom is part of these expectations.
Homework is an important part of learning at Risedale. The purpose of homework is to engage and challenge students with meaningful and interesting tasks. Completing homework regularly will greatly improve student progress. Managing out of school learning is a great way to improve organisational skills; an important life tool. All subjects set homework. A range of tasks including flipped learning, research, project tasks and reading will be set.
Not all homework will be completed at home. Some students find it easier and more effective (because of resources available) to complete homework at school. Homework clubs are provided as well as 'Extended School' for year 11 students.
