Broomfield Homework Policy

Homework is a key component of our vision of Broomfield pupils and students as active and independent learners. A key principle of homework is that it should advance learning. Pupils and students need to understand what it is they are expected to do, why they have to do it and what the success criteria are. Teachers will make every effort to make sure homework tasks are productive, varied, engaging and enjoyable.
