Homework provides students with opportunities to consolidate their classroom learning, pattern behaviour for lifelong learning beyond the classroom and involve family members in their learning. The setting of homework takes into account the need for the students to have a balanced lifestyle. This includes sufficient time for family, recreational and cultural pursuits.
Homework that enhances student learning:
is purposeful and relevant to students' needs
is appropriate to the phase of learning (Early or Middle)
is appropriate to the capability of the student
develops the student's independence as a learner
is varied, challenging and clearly related to the class work
allows for student commitment to recreational, family and cultural activities.
School Homework Guidelines are outlined in the BPSS Homework Policy. However, it is up to the individual classroom as to how homework is implemented.
