Learning at West Coventry Academy


At West Coventry Academy we believe that Homework is a key element of learning. We use Microsoft Teams to set homework and to communicate with students and parents. Please click here to see a guide on how to access Microsoft Teams.

Homework is important because it:

  • …helps children make progress
  • …provides an opportunity for parents to participate in their children's education
  • …is crucial in developing time management skills
  • …shows teachers where to take your child’s learning next

It also promotes resilience and independence.

How can I help my child with homework?

  • Keep a designated homework area at home
  • Help keep a homework routine for your son/daughter
  • If your child is struggling with homework they need to speak to their teacher before the next lesson
  • Praise and encourage your child to help
    boost their confidence
  • Do get your child to teach you
  • Use the after-school homework clubs
  • Use Teams to check your child's homework
  • If your son/daughter has not been able to do their homework, please write a note in the planner for the teacher
  • Don't get worried by homework – if you are, your child will be too
