NUAST is open to children of key-worker parents and those classed as vulnerable. From the 15th June Year 10 and 12 students should attend only on the days detailed in the letter sent to parents.

Homework

For all students, homework is an important part of learning at NUAST.

NUAST believes that homework is important in:

  • Reinforcing, broadening and extending the school curriculum
  • enabling students to understand that independent learning is vital to achieving success and highly desired by employers and further education
  • instilling the importance of life-long learning
  • encouraging organisational skills and self-discipline.

Homework is set for a variety of reasons, which are:

  • to encourage and develop self-discipline, planning and time management skills
  • to encourage and develop independent study habits
  • to give students a sense of responsibility for, and a commitment to their learning
  • to allow reinforcing, extending and consolidating of work done in lessons
  • to involve parents/carers as partners in education
  • to develop revision skills and efficient preparation for assessments.
