Homework Planners

To help students organise their homework, a Homework Planner has been created for each year group. The planner spreads homework tasks across the week to avoid them building up and aims to help the students meet all homework deadlines in a timely manner.

Specific details of tasks (i.e. set date, homework details and hand in date) will be recorded on SIMS and will be available to parents via the SIMS Parent application.

The Homework Planners can be viewed here:

Not all students will be able to follow the Planner exactly each week and are expected to make necessary arrangements to allow all deadlines to be met.
