At Manchester Health Academy the completion of homework is an important part of Academy life and provides your child with gaining several skills each time they complete work at home. These skills are essential throughout your child’s life.
Responsibility. When students assume responsibility for their homework and complete it on time they are learning to be accountable for their actions.
Time management. Students that complete their homework on time learn the benefits of being organised. They also learn to plan their time well to ensure the work is completed to a deadline.
Perseverance. Homework teaches students how to deal with adversity. They will become confident in asking for help when they are unsure and once completed take pride in finishing homework regardless of difficulties or problems they faced.
Self-esteem. Completing homework in a timely manner will help your child develop trust and self-confidence. The inspiration to work harder on the next project occurs when students feel good about their accomplishments.
