Following our school homework policy, Homework will be set via our online learning platforms once a week for all classes. We use online programmes such as Seneca to support and aid learning.

Equipment and resources

Students should have a pencil case with them every lesson.  Pencil cases should include: black/blue pens, highlighters, a pencil, a ruler and colours (optional).

At KS4, students will also be given revision guides to look after to support with GCSE.

department Praise AND RECOGNITION

‘Leading the way ‘is a praise system within RE that takes place twice per half term. Staff award a postcard home and prize to a student who has set a good example in their class and has been ‘leading the way’ on the specific focus for the half term e.g  behaviour, work, effort or ethos. Our ‘Leading the way’ students are shared on our Department twitter page, in class and also on the Praise display within our block.
