NHS Independent Practice IP - 6 Day Schedule

At Newmark High School, IP is assigned based on their 6-day schedule. Students may choose to use the weekend to complete some of their assignment.   We are sensitive to the impact of "homework"  on family and respect the value of family time.  We encourage students and parents to communicate challenges students face in completing independent practice.  Newmark also believes that the successful use of independent practice to support learning is not dependent upon the amount of time taken with homework but the degree to which it:

• Engages students
• Connects to the students’ individual abilities
• Links to the work undertaken in class
