Brakenhale School


Homework Policy

Homework is an important part of students’ learning. At Brakenhale we want to ensure that students take time to consolidate and embed their learning through re-visiting and re-learning topics which are studied in class.

Knowledge Organisers are used to support students with their self-quizzing, as well as revision for end of term assessments.

Self-Quizzing at Key Stage 3

In Years 7 – 9 students complete self-quizzing every evening.  For Maths and English the homework is completed online using Sparx (and for Year 9 Science).  For the other subjects students complete ten self-quizzing questions from their Knowledge Organisers every day.  Each day they complete a different subject as per the timetable below:

  Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday
Week A MFL Sparks Maths English Sparx


Sparx Science

Week B Vocab 
(Tier 1-3)
Sparks Maths English Sparx


Sparx Science


A printed booklet is provided for each student to complete their homework in and the knowledge required and questions to answer are shared with students via google classroom.  Students should either access google classroom via their school email or log on directly using their school email and password.

You will also find a pdf version of the resources at the bottom of this page.

Self Quizzing Video

The self-quizzing homework is checked by tutors every morning during line up and by class teachers every two weeks during lessons.  Here you will find a video modelling the use of self quizzing:

Google Classroom / Class Charts for Key Stage 4 and Key Stage 5

At KS4 and KS5 teachers will communicate homework via Google Classroom or Class Charts.  These online platforms allow teachers to share homework tasks, resources, support and guidance with their students.  If assistance is needed using either of the platforms, please contact your tutor or your class teacher for that specific subject.

Students from all year groups have the opportunity to attend a homework club which runs every day from 3:10-4pm in the LRC.
