At Glyn School, we believe Homework is an essential part of learning. It has huge potential to support our students in being able to know, understand and do more, well.

It plays a crucial role in supporting students on their journey to independence and being able to self-regulate their own learning. Effective Homework can lead to significant accelerated student progress and has been shown to have the highest impact on secondary school age students.

Homework will be set with a clear purpose, in one of these four areas.

Glyn Homework


The nature of the Homework tasks will vary between subjects, Year groups and topics. The most effective tasks are those which are frequent, short and focused on knowledge which is integral to lessons.


Homework will be set in line with the policy designed by each Faculty/Subject to best suit their curriculum at each Key Stage. For the frequency of each subject’s Homework please refer to our Homework Policy.


Unless stated otherwise, tasks will adhere to the following guidance.

Homework duration guidance

Key Stage

Length of task


Up to 30 minutes


Up to 45 minutes


Up to an hour

Setting Homework

Homework will be set via Google Classroom as an assignment, which indicates that it is a Homework in its title. It is the responsibility of the student to click ‘submitted,’ even if the work does not require a document being uploaded on Google Classroom and will be checked in the lesson. Parents and Carers can become the guardians of their child’s Google Classroom and receive summaries of work set and submitted and ongoing deadlines. Please follow this step by step guide on becoming a Google Classroom guardian. Should you experience any difficulties, please email for set up support.

One core consolidation of learning Homework, for all students, across all subjects, is self-quizzing. This is where students use resources, such as knowledge organisers, to practice retrieving knowledge from memory. Students will receive a self-quizzing book from their Form Tutor. Teachers will set self-quizzing tasks, for students to complete in their self-quizzing book. Completion will be acknowledged through reviewing students’ self-quizzing books and through completion of quizzes, which test their knowledge.

Teachers will model to students what effective self-quizzing looks like in each subject, but there are several self-quizzing techniques, which can be found in our Homework Policy  and in these teacher walk through videos

Self-Quizzing is proven to lead to Great Learning. For more information on how students can become Great Learners please see this digitised document.
