As parents / carers are aware homework is a crucial part of a student’s learning and academic development . At Hillcrest we strive to ensure that all students take pride in both classwork and homework and work to their full potential in both aspects of their learning. As part of our commitment to this we are introducing an updated rewards system to motivate students to ‘go beyond’ expectations when completing homework. As part of this system students will now receive a 20 minute ‘Homework Improvement Detention’ if they have attempted a piece of homework but their teacher feels they have failed to meet expectations or the homework is not in line with their current working grade.

This system will start from Monday 22 February onwards. Please contact me at school if you would like to discuss the updated system further.
