At Beechen Cliff we are very clear about the importance of homework.  We believe homework has huge benefits – it improves performance in lessons, enables positive reinforcement from teachers, improves attitudes towards lessons and develops pupils’ capacity to work independently.  Homework is set rigorously and the school has high expectations of pupils and the quality of the homework handed in to teachers.  There is also an expectation that parents will provide the encouragement, the resources and the quiet space to allow homework to be completed well.

Homework is set via Google Classroom, an online portal, which pupils and students have access to via their school RM Unify login. Parents receive weekly summaries of their son or daughter’s homework via email.

Beechen Cliff also runs Homework Club, supervised time after school for pupils to receive additional support with homework.  Some pupils are directed to Homework Club on a basis of need and some attend voluntarily. Homework Club runs every day after school in the school library.
