Consolidating knowledge and deepening understanding through independent learning.
This overview explains our approach to homework and how students use it to consolidate their curriculum knowledge.
Homework is important because it enables students to:
- Continue learning outside of the classroom
- Consolidate newly-acquired knowledge, revise prior learning and practise skills
- Develop the self-discipline, perseverance and confidence to study independently
- Involve parents/carersin their learning

Recommended Reading List
At SRS, we encourage all students to establish a reading habit that will help to shape them into empathetic, well-rounded and life-long learners.
We have therefore curated a ‘Recommended Reading List’ that we think is both ambitious and interesting, and reflects many of the texts that teachers have read and loved. The books referred to are listed in an order, starting with those that are easier and then building to more challenging reads (within each year group and across all year groups).
The document outlines both the literature that is taught in the curriculum (labelled as ‘core texts’) and those that we suggest are read in students’ own time. We hope students find it valuable.
