The Academy Homework Policy can be found here.
As part of our continued commitment to improving student progress across all year groups, ACE Academy will ensure every student receives regular and challenging homework to support and enhance successful learning.
Homework can cover a variety of activities i.e. research, organising and preparing materials for a lesson, learning, reading, questionnaires, interviewing, essay writing, using the library or on-line resources, practising a skill or preparing a presentation.
