Homework is set regularly at Ark Elvin Academy to consolidate the learning that has taken place in the classroom. It provides an opportunity to extend students' understanding and the chance to revisit key material. Homework can also be set to prepare students for future classwork. Setting homework is a sign to both students and parents/carers of the high standards we have as an academy, which parents/carers can see when they sign their child's planner. Homework gives parents/carers an insight into what their child is studying. Regular homework setting allows students to build routines.
