Benefits are likely to be more modest, up to two to three months’ progress on average, if homework is more routinely set e. Have you made the purpose of homework clear to children e. We will still be left with tricky decisions and no little disagreement, but we will be better off having tackled the issue properly. Homework refers to tasks given to pupils by their teachers to be completed outside of usual lessons. We should pose ourselves some tricky questions:

A number of reviews and meta-analyses have explored this issue. Overall costs are estimated as very low. Common homework activities in secondary schools are completing tasks assigned in lessons, such as practicing further questions or problems in mathematics, or preparing for tasks in future lessons. Our Research Schools aim to lead the way in the use of evidence-based practice and bring research closer to schools. Low impact for high cost, based on limited evidence.

We will still be left with tricky decisions and no little disagreement, but we will be better off having tackled the issue properly. There are a smaller number of studies which have investigated what happens when homework is introduced and comparison is made with classes where homework is not given, where the typical gain is as much as five or six months homeworkk progress for secondary pupils.

Before you implement this strategy in your learning environment, consider the following: P Parental engagement O Organising your school. Sending text nudges to parents to improve literacy, maths, and social and emotional outcomes.

We should expect that every teacher and school leader understands the nuanced homeworm that attends homework, with the differences that relate to individuals, groups and students of very different ages and stages of development.
