Work is expected to be submitted back to teachers, but there is no pressure to do this immediately. Individual teachers will make clear their expectations around submitting work when individual tasks are set.
Feedback to students will consist of discussion during the lessons, summative comments through Teams or Firefly, or on the work itself.
Teaching staff will be keeping a close eye on academic work and will be regularly assessing and reviewing students’ attainment and progress. This assessment will continue in line with our usual framework, taking into account both effort and attainment. Where there are specific concerns in any of these areas, our usual school approach will apply; subject teachers will address individual concerns, whilst form tutors will manage any broader issues.
Homework and personal study
Homework is being set as normal. For Key Stage 3, a student should expect 30-45 min of work per class per week. At Key Stage 4, it is 45-60 min. For Sixth Form students at Canonbury, students are set 5-6 hours per week.
Please note that during the online education provision, many subject areas are setting larger pieces of project work that span several weeks.
If there are any subject-specific questions or concerns about homework, please email the subject teacher or Head of Faculty directly.
