Homework at Kineton school is split between “Consolidatory” and “Exploratory” tasks and is only set for students to enhance and support learning. The majority of departments will use consolidatory tasks the most to cement learning in the classroom, and make it stick. However exploratory tasks also play an important role whereby students can explore creativity and foster a greater sense of enthusiasm around a subject. 

Evidence suggests that when set appropriately homework can build confidence in students, is a key driver in facilitating students to practice material already taught and prepares children to access the curriculum to its fullest. Homework also plays a vital role as a key building block for all students’ literacy and numeracy skills that are utilised across the entire curriculum.  

Each subject has a rationale for why homework is set within their curriculum, and what balance between consolidatory and exploratory they have chosen to focus on in each Key Stage.
