Enrichment and Homework

Enrichment

Enrichment is an integral part of our curriculum on three days each week. Enrichment classes begin at 3.00pm and all students are required to attend at least two enrichments each week. All enrichment sessions form part of students’ timetables.

In enrichment, students are given the opportunity to extend their learning beyond the normal curriculum, increase their cultural capital and develop interests which will hopefully last a lifetime. Importantly, enrichment also gives students the opportunity to work with children of other ages in a structured learning environment.

Enrichment activities are volunteered by teachers and chosen by students for a term or for the whole academic year depending upon the activity. Students are able to select from a menu of enrichment subjects so that they are engaged in activities which meet their preference and extend their learning experiences.

The current Chobham enrichment menu includes:

  • Sports
  • Drama
  • Orchestra
  • Dance
  • Debating
  • Manga
  • Languages

 

Homework

Homework is central to learning at Chobham Academy. We expect all teachers to set homework regularly; students to complete homework conscientiously and parents to support homework and tell the Academy if any issues arise.

Well planned homework enhances and extends the learning students encounter in class. Some homework should embed class learning, other pieces will involve finding out about and explaining new things. What all homeworks should have in common is that they are thought out by the teacher, relevant and appropriately challenging for students.

All students should record homework in their planner. Parents can also check what homework has been set via the Show My Homework website.

Here is an approximate guide to the amount of homework students should be doing each week:

Years 7-9: 30 minutes per subject each week (English, Maths and Science have two homeworks a week).

Years 10-11: at least one hour per subject each week (English, Maths and Science have two homeworks a week).

Post 16 (A Level and Vocational): a minimum of five hours of homework for each subject.
