Homework tasks are set on a regular basis at Haughton Academy and there is an expectation that all students will work independently at home, completing set activities or revising for their own learning for at least 2 hours per week.
All students are encouraged to develop excellent learning skills by recording their homework in their planners and handing in all set homework on time. Most subjects will provide homework on I am Learning. This is a games based website that has been proven to raise results by 8-13.5% if a student uses it for at least one hour a week. Subjects will also set a variety of learning activities, such as worksheets, project based learning and other resources on the Internet. We encourage students to complete their homework at home and to also use the Learning Resource Centre before, during or after school.
