Homework

Homework at Fulston Manor is seen as an imperative part of a child’s education and as such we ensure that all homework set is well-structured, directly linked to the curriculum and challenging for all students.

Every student will receive feedback on their homework in order to support their progress. We actively encourage parents and carers to support students with their home learning and are always happy to receive ideas or feedback in order to develop this aspect of our curriculum further.

In KS3 Homework is organised into two categories – Homework that is set on a regular weekly basis and homework that is set as a two-week project. The homework projects will allow students to engage with open-ended learning opportunities that will challenge all abilities and also develop independence and resilience. The type of Homework set will be dependent on individual curriculum subjects. We recommend that students make good use of our Homework Club facility that runs every day after school, in the Library. The club gives students access to IT resources as well as individual support if required.

Students at Key Stage 4 and 5 will be set regular weekly homework that is directly linked to the curriculum and this will be aimed at preparing students for examinations, re-enforcing classroom learning and preparing for learning.

Homework is set using our online information system, Arbor. Students and parents and carers are given their own, individual log-in details. If you are experiencing any issues with this system or require additional support, please contact our friendly and helpful IT Services Team. 

Please use the drop-down sections below to view our Homework Timetables for each year group. Alternatively, our entire Homework Timetable can be downloaded at the bottom of this page. 

If you have questions or concerns over homework please feel free to contact Mrs L Hay, Assistant Headteacher. {[email protected]).

Year 12 & 13 (Sixth Form) 

There is an expectation that a student who is studying a Level 3 course should complement the lesson time on that course through independent study, not just in school, and of at least half the lesson time.  That is five hours lesson time and three hours independent study minimum per subject, per week.

A student studying a GCSE subject should be expected to add at least four hours of independent study per week.

Details of homework will be published via ARBOR, students should be encouraged to submit work by uploading it or handing it to the teacher for feedback
