As an Academy we regard traditional homework to now take the form of ‘Prep’. In other words work that is set to be completed outside of the classroom that needs to be done to prepare for the learning that is to come.
Prep will be issued on a regular basis based on the needs of the future learning. All staff in the relevant subjects will set Prep and record it in Edulink. Revision may be set as prep as it is preparing for an upcoming exam, and will consist of a structured activity.
Tasks will be between 15 – 30 minutes in length for years 7-8, and 30 – 45 minutes for years 9-11. A minimum of 1 hour for Sixth formers will be set.
The completion of Prep is vital to ensure that students are ready for the learning that will be coming up in class; therefore students that do not complete prep will fall under the Academies behaviour for learning protocols.
Wrenn uses ‘Edulink’, an online tool that shows all of your children’s Prep, deadlines and grades.
There is an app available for you to use this service, download them from the usual online stores, again details should’ve been given to you.
