At Ingleby Manor Free School it’s our intention that our students at Key Stage 3 (Year 7, 8 and 9) won’t have any homework.
Our reasoning for this is very simple – our longer school day is designed to allow an independent study session which gives students the time to complete any extension tasks and to embark upon their own research topics. By the time your child walks or cycles home at 4:30pm they will know that school work for the day is finished. This also means that evenings are free for family time and other activities.
As students move into their Key Stage 4 (Year 10 and 11) studies, there will be an expectation to complete GCSE extension tasks at home.
