Homework Principles Homework is an important part of our students’ academic journey. At Walton High School homework is used to:
  • Retrieve prior knowledge
  • Prepare students for upcoming lessons
  • Allow students to practice and rehearse new learning to obtain mastery
  • Give students the opportunity to read around a subject and explore a subject further to develop their own interests
  • Stretch and challenge a student’s learning
The regular setting of homework can aid the transfer of knowledge from the working memory to the long-term memory which can benefit progress and attainment. Homework at Walton High School can take a variety of formats, including (but not exclusively):
  • GCSE Pod Podcasts
  • Self-marking, online quizzes through programmes such as GCSE Pod, Dr Frost and Educake
  • Exam-style questions
  • Knowledge audits or mind-maps
  • Reading articles, books or blogs
  • Research projects
  • Comprehension tasks
  • Coursework completion
At Walton we use a range of websites to set and monitor homework: Here is a list of support guides Parents Support Guide Student Support Guide Homework Timetable for each year:
