Homework

Homework is an integral part of life at Vale Academy. We provide all parents and students with a clear Homework timetable for the year in the first few weeks of the Autumn term. 

What is the purpose of homework?
• To reinforce skills and understanding, particularly in literacy and numeracy.
• Use a variety of resources for learning, many of which can be found at home
• Extend academy learning
• Encourage pupils as they get older to develop the confidence and self-discipline needed to study on their own. 

Please help your child to study at home by…
• Providing a suitable area and peaceful time in which they can study
• Show your child that you understand the value homework and its purpose to extend their learning in academy
• Encourage and praise completion of homework
• Reinforce the importance of deadlines
