Pupil Work January 2013

Pupil Work Maths Only January 2013



The school policy on homework is to set and mark homework. It is also the policy of the school to advise and guide pupils to complete their homework.


We expect all pupils to do homework and, as far as is possible and reasonable, every pupil should receive one substantial homework exercise per week in each subject studied which should be recorded in the Student’s Diary for parents to check.

The time taken to do a particular homework will vary from pupil to pupil, depending on ability, depth of experience and keenness to produce a good piece of work.  Homework will not always involve the production of written work. Pupils may be asked to learn work, to carry out research for a project or to collect material.

If a parent feels that a homework is taking too long they should write a note in the homework diary to let the teacher know, and to ensure that the learner is not disadvantaged in any way.  If there is a special occasion which means that a learner can not complete a piece of homework on time then again a note in the homework diary will ensure that a reasonable extension can be provided.

When a learner is away from school due to illness or family holiday etc it is expected that they copy up any work missed while they are away.  Help will be provided in cases of long term absence.

Expected duration of homework;

KS3 (Years 7-9) 20 - 30 minutes per item set

KS4 (Years 10-11) 40 - 60 minutes per item set

KS5 (Years 12 and 13) - According to subject need

Cymraeg English

Powys Route for 2018 Commonwealth Games Queen’s Baton Relay

The Queen’s Baton Relay will visit Powys this September during its 388-day journey through the Commonwealth. 

The Powys route is part of the 230,000 kilometer journey to the baton’s final destination - The Gold Coast Commonwealth Games in Australia in April 2018.

The baton will spend four days in Wales, making its way through Powys on September 7 as part of a journey through every nation and territory within the commonwealth in the build up to the opening ceremony. 

Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Communications Cllr Wynne Jones, said: “We are delighted to be welcoming the Queen’s Baton Relay to Powys once again. 

“As the baton travels through the county, it’s an opportunity to celebrate our rich heritage, culture, beautiful landscapes and the Welsh language on an international stage. 

“The Powys route will begin in Brecon, travel up to Rhayader for a public street event before stopping at Llanidloes high and primary schools and a private photo stop in Llandinam.

“It will then travel to the new Welsh-medium Ysgol Dafydd Llwyd in Newtown, before a final stop in the county at Welshpool.

“I hope having the Queen’s Baton in Powys will ignite pride in our county and Welsh athletes competing in the games. Plans are at an early stage but we look forward to putting on memorable activities to mark this exciting occasion.”

Chris Jenkins, Commonwealth Games Wales Chief Executive, said: “We’re extremely proud to announce this route. The Relay will give everyone a chance to be involved in an unforgettable experience.”
