Homework and Planners

Article 29: Goals of education - Education must develop every child's personality, talents and abilities to the full. It must encourage the child's respect for human rights, as well as respect for their parents, their own and other cultures, and the environment.

We are a Unicef Rights Respecting School. The Rights Respecting School Award puts children's rights at the heart of schools in the UK.

We aim to be a safe and inspiring place to learn, where children are respected, their talents and nurtured and they are able to thrive.

The Rights Respecting Schools Award embeds these values in daily school life at Oscott Manor School and gives children the best chance to lead happy, healthy lives and to be responsible, active citizens.

  • A cross –curricular homework project will be set for the second half term of each term. Pupils will have project folders to complete this in. Set in first week of the second half term of each term to be returned in the penultimate week of the term.

Key Stage 4  

  • Homework will be set weekly; one piece of maths and one piece of English. This will be set on a Tuesday to be returned for marking on Monday.
  • In addition to maths and English pupils will receive additional homework projects as required by the subjects studied.


  • Each young person will have a pupil planner and this will be used to record homework.
  • If you have a query about your child’s homework, please record it in their pupil planner.

Pupil Planner

In order to facilitate regular home school communication, we ask parents/carers to check and sign their child’s planner once a week, so that they can monitor homework being set as well as responding to messages written in the planners by staff.
