At Edward Peake, we believe that it is important to consolidate the learning that takes place in the classroom and to help support and encourage pupils’ enthusiasm for learning outside of the classroom. Homework tasks are set in every year group, with the amount of homework set and the expectations for how long pupils should spend on each task, increasing as pupils move into each new year group.

Homework tasks are set by each subject leader but class teachers may adapt a particular homework task to suit the needs of an individual learner. Homework tasks can be used to recap and consolidate learning that has already taken place in class or to introduce vocabulary which pupils will encounter within a topic or to extend pupils’ learning beyond what has been covered in class. Pupils are encouraged to refer to notes they have made in class or information shared on Google classrooms to support them in completing their homework.
This term’s homework timetable can be found here: Homework Timetable Spring Term 2023


Homework is set on Google classroom and pupils are encouraged to complete online wherever possible. Any pupil who does not have access to an appropriate device can complete any homework set on paper instead.

If you wish to discuss the homework set for your child please contact the subject teacher in the first instance. This can be done by emailing the school office on
Your email will then be directed to the appropriate member of staff.
