Homework and home study are essential elements of academic success at all Key Stages.
Homework reinforces and helps pupils to retain information taught in the classroom as well as increasing their general understanding of the language. Homework develops study habits and independent learning with research showing that homework also benefits factual knowledge, self-discipline, attitudes to learning and problem-solving skills. These are some of the skills we want every St. Cecilia’s pupil to develop and so we place great importance on completing homework to a high standard.
We encourage all pupils to follow the homework guidelines below to ensure that they achieve of their best.
