HOMEWORK POLICY

Rationale

Homework is an essential part of the learning process. It solidifies content taught in class and teaches students the ability to work independently and manage their time effectively. However, it is essential to ensure that students are not overloaded.

Students in Grades 0-2 should receive homework as follows:

  • All students will receive 30 minutes of homework per week in either English, Maths, IPC, Bulgarian or Science. This homework will be due one week after the set date, allowing for completion during the weekend if desired.

  • All students will receive a minimum of 180 minutes of homework per week in English Literature, Biology and Maths. Students are expected to take initiative and engage in self-directed revision including past-paper questions in preparation for their AS-Level exams. Students are also expected to attend consultations and study for their Bulgarian curriculum subjects.

Monitoring

Homework for all students should be recorded in the student’s student planner with clear instructions and due date. Parents are strongly encouraged to monitor homework set and support the school in ensuring homework is completed on time. Failure to complete homework is considered a disciplinary offence in line with the school’s behaviour policy.

Electronic resources

St. George International School & Preschool understands that students may wish to carry out additional study outside of school. All students receive a MobyMax account and access to the EBSCO online library, which will allow them to complete additional studies if desired. 

Absences – Secondary School Students

While sick, the student should get information about his/her classwork/homework from their classmates;

After returning back to school, the students should collect the classwork/homework directly from their teachers. The missed work is due in as many days as the student was absent.

Thank you for cooperating with us to make the students more responsible and proactive young people.
