Prayers

Life of St Edmund's Prayer

StEdmundimage



Heavenly Father, as we gather in prayer, we ask for the guidance and inspiration of our school patron,
St Edmund, who led a life based on Gospel values and the belief in the power of God.


We, pray that like Edmund, each of us will personally come to believe that,
“I can do all things with the help of God who strengthens me” (Philippians 4:13)
and that together our school community may grow ever closer to you and to one another.


May our school be a place that reaches out to the wider community
and is mindful of the environment around us.


We pray in union with the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.                                                                     

Amen

Independent Homework Booklets

 
                        
 Homework is an essential way of encouraging independence in learning. For homework to be effective there must be consistency in school practice combined with parental support. This booklet is designed so that pupils, teachers and parents are all able to work together to ensure the best outcomes for learning.

At St Edmund’s the aim of our Independent Homework Projects are to:

·        consolidate, support or extend what pupils are learning in the classroom.

·        assist teachers in assessing pupil’s strengths and learning needs.

·        develop pupil’s skills.

·        stretch and challenge students.

·        develop a greater sense of responsibility and independence.  

·        celebrate hard work and success of pupils.


What are Independent Homework Projects?

Independent Homework Projects (IHP’s) are specific pieces of work which are set as a project. Whilst they have a clear focus students are able to work independently developing their own direction of learning and unique outcomes.  

IHP’s are set in all subjects each term and twice a term for English and Maths. All the tasks are published in advance and each one has a fixed start and finish date.   Pupils are responsible for completing IHP’s and will be given support and advice by their teachers.  

How will the IHP’s be marked?

Each pupil will receive a feedback sheet from their teacher giving a grade, a comment about the progress made in the project and a target for future improvement. They may also give a National Curriculum level for the piece of work. The homework grades correspond to the grades given on the termly Progress Reviews and are as follows:

4:            Excellent: Completed the work to the highest standard or has gone beyond the required task.

3:            Good: Completed the work to the highest standard.

2:            Satisfactory: Completed the work to the required standard.

1:            Unsatisfactory: Work not completed or not completed to the required standard.

What will happen if the IHP is not completed?

If the pupil does not complete an IHP they will be set a 1 hour detention by the department concerned to finish the work. Parents will be informed by text. If there is a genuine reason why a pupil cannot complete an IHP it is essential that parents inform the school before the deadline date.  

Additional Learning Tasks

These may also be set by teachers. These could be about 20 minutes in length and will be recorded in the pupil’s planner.

KS4 Homework


Homework is an essential way of encouraging independence in learning. For homework to be effective there must be consistency in school practice combined with parental support.
At Key stage 4 pupils should be building on the good practice that they should have acquired by completing the independent homework task set during years 7- 9.


HOMEWORK

Studying for GCSE examinations requires many different and varied skills and tasks. Pupils may have to complete coursework or controlled assessments or may have to put together a portfolio of work as part of their course.

Homework is therefore going to depend very much on the requirements of the course and the individual progress each student is making in their course.

This booklet has been complied to give student and parents some guidance about the expectations of homework that will be set by teachers.

Regular homework will be set by each teacher and the exact task and the date each homework is due in should be recorded by the student in their diary.




If you have any further questions or concerns about homework please contact your child’s tutor, Head of Learning or the appropriate Head of Department.


Thank you for your support.
