Homework

Homework is used at Harris Academy Battersea to reinforce learning in the classroom, allowing students to retrieve and apply knowledge from across the curriculum.

Homework helps students demonstrate their resilience through developing fundamental skills such as time management and organisation, eventually demonstrating mastery of material, and offers opportunities to show their integrity when completing without the assistance of a teacher. Homework gives students the opportunity for independent learning so they can thrive in a changing world.

The design of homework at HABS aims to avoid meaningless or "busy” work, as opposed to embedding knowledge through retrieval practice.

In the Mathematics and English departments, the online systems Hegarty Maths and Bedrock are used as homework or as additional support for learning. For the remainder of the Autumn 2021 term, years 7 to 10 will be completing homework using these online systems. To help navigate these websites, read our guide to help students ensure they are gaining the most out of these systems.

Click HERE to read our student online homework guide.


Student support

To support students with their homework, each student will be provided with a homework folder to help organise the work they’ll be receiving and to keep their work safe. These folders are considered essential equipment, therefore the expectation is for all students to bring them in. Within these folders, students will have a personalised homework timetable so they are aware when homework will be set and collected.

To further support students, departments will have designated homework areas so that students can collect hard copies if they happen to miss the lesson when homework is given out. It is a student’s responsibility to collect their homework if they lose or miss when it has been set.

Homework club will run where selected students can have a quiet place to complete their homework with support from staff.


Homework timetable

Click HERE to download our homework timetable for 2021-22.

At HABS, paper homework is set once per week for each subject between Years 7 and 13. For every student, for every subject, students will therefore receive one piece of homework per week on green paper.

The only exceptions are PE core lessons for all year groups, for which homework is not set, for Maths where an online system called Hegarty Maths is used, and for literacy homework which uses Bedrock Literacy programme.

Each subject has an allocated day of the week where homework is set and checked by the teacher; if a piece of homework is set on a Monday, it will be collected the following Monday in the lesson.

The only exception for this are the two online homework systems, Hegarty Maths and Bedrock, where the deadline is 8:30pm the night before the new homework will be set, so it can be checked in advance of the lesson. For example, Year 7 Maths teachers will set homework on Friday 17th September 2021 on Hegarty, the deadline will be the next Thursday on the 23rd September 2021 at 8:30pm.

A link to our 2021-22 homework timetable for all students can be found above. Open the timetable to familiarise yourself with when homework is due for each subject. This indicates the day that homework will be set and checked for each class.

If students lose their homework, spare copies can be collected from the subject's department or any teacher. Any homework that is not attempted will be recorded by the classroom teacher on the day that it is due to be checked and a 45-minute detention will be set for that same day. Parents will be informed via text.

Should there be any problems or issues, please email info@harrisbattersea.org.uk with your child’s full name, their year group and a description of the issue.
