  • Learning at St Agnes
    • Homework Policy

      The Homework Policy has its foundation in the Teaching and Learning Policy, which acknowledges that all members of the community are engaged in life-long learning.  Integral to the understanding of this policy is the belief that all students have gifts and talents and are capable of learning.  Learning occurs at different rates and in different ways and occurs best where the student, home and school have a common goal.

      Rationale

      Effective homework engenders in students a growing confidence in their capacity to learn and, therefore, is not set for its own sake.  It allows students to practise and consolidate work done in class and to develop the key competencies of collecting, analysing and organising information.  Homework provides an avenue for students to reinforce skills and to develop effective time management.  It also provides parents with insights into what is being taught in the classroom and the progress of their children.  Parents are encouraged to be supportive of their child’s learning by taking an active interest in their progress.  Homework endeavours to support the needs of all students and is a direct link to the learning program at school.

      Types of Homework

      Homework may consist of:

      • practical exercises providing students with the opportunities to review, revise and reinforce newly acquired skills and knowledge.  Examples include:
        • Consolidation exercises
        • Practising for mastery
        • Revising for in-class assessments or examinations
        • Revising information about a current topic
        • Reading for pleasure
        • Essay writing
        • Completing formal assessment tasks and other assignments
      • preparatory homework providing opportunities for students to gain background information on a unit of study so they are better prepared for future lessons  Examples include:-
        • Background reading
        • Reading of prescribed texts
        • Researching topics for a class unit of work
        • Collecting items
      • extension assignments, which encourage students to pursue knowledge individually, and imaginatively.  Examples include:
        • Writing
        • Making, creating or designing
        • Investigating
        • Researching
        • Information and retrieval skills
        • Monitoring of documents, e.g. newspapers

      Research indicates that regularly revising new concepts and skills learnt in class is far more beneficial than attempting to revise only at the end of units.

      The amount of homework will increase as students progress through their schooling.  Coordination of homework across faculties is important to alleviate the stress placed on students with the competing demands in regard to assessment tasks, examination preparation and consolidation of new work learnt in class.

      Students are encouraged to accept responsibility for their own learning and to further develop independent learning.

      As a guide for students this homework schedule in:

      • Year 7 & 8 should on average be no more than 10-15 minutes per subject on the day they have those lessons
      • Years 9 & 10 should on average be no more than 15-20 minutes per course on the day they have those lessons

      Students are expected to work with their teachers to ensure that the homework that is set is competed to the best of their ability within a reasonable time frame.  Teachers should follow through on homework so students’ work can be affirmed, areas of difficulty identified and support offered where necessary.

      When appropriate, teachers ensure that students write their homework in their student diary.  Parents are requested to check and sign this homework weekly and are encouraged to monitor the homework for their children in all their subjects.

      If a student does not complete the requested homework then appropriate action is taken to investigate the reason.  This is, in the first instance, be managed by the classroom teacher.  If homework is not completed on a regular basis then the classroom teacher will advise the Stage coordinator and Learning & Teaching coordinator where further investigation will be conducted.  Students are expected to balance their homework time with home obligations and leisure activities.

    • Road Safety Policy

      At St Agnes Catholic High School we believe that a road safety policy provides a framework of common understanding for students, staff, parents/carers and the community who interact with the school to provide a safe environment.

      Our Catholic School is founded on the person of Jesus Christ and is committed to educate in Gospel values - especially in hope, love, justice and care for others in the community.

      The main intention of this policy is to ensure the health, safety and welfare of our students who use the services and facilities of this school. We do this by assessing the risks in the road environment around our school, developing practical school management procedures and ensuring that curriculum pertaining to all road safety issues is taught to our students.

      Environmental Statement
      St Agnes is located on Evans Road in Rooty Hill. It is situated in a residential area with a high traffic flow. The majority of students catch a bus to and from school, or are dropped off by private transport.  Street parking is limited in the area; this may result in traffic congestion. The school’s bus stop is located at the front of the school. St Agnes has no separated bus bay or drive through for the local bus company to use. The buses pull into the curb.

      Aims/Goals

      At St Agnes Catholic High School we aim:

      To provide a quality road safety education program that develops responsible road use, attitudes and behaviours.

      To provide management procedures that aim to maximise student safety and the wellbeing, health, and safety of all.

      To encourage the education of road safety issues in the wider school community, e.g. parents/carers, staff and visitors.

      Curriculum Statement

      At St Agnes Catholic High School our staff have developed and implemented an effective, sequential road safety education programs within:

      7-10 PDHPE programs

      Information section within the school’s newsletter


      Our programs make use of current NSW Roads and Traffic Authority (RTA) resources and address the following road safety issues for our students:

      passenger safety

      pedestrian safety

      safety on wheels (such as bicycles, scooters, roller-blades and skateboards)

      driver education


      When it is appropriate we will make use of other suitable resources and incorporate them as part of an ongoing program. The use of additional resources should enhance the teaching and learning of road safety education to our students.

      School Management Procedures
      At St Agnes Catholic High School the staff will maximise the safety of students by:

      • ensuring no less than 2 staff members (including a member of the school leadership team) is on duty at the front of the school

      • ensuring no less than 3 staff members are on bus duty during the afternoon

      • students that catch the bus are assembled in the designated areas before moving to their bus

      • students behave appropriately and respectfully when leaving the school and when catching public transport

      • investigating and acting on any inappropriate behaviour reported to the school by the staff, students and parents of the St Agnes community, members of the public and operators of any bus company associated with the school

      • providing active supervision when students are catching public transport for excursions, camps or retreats

      Members of the St Agnes Catholic High School community regularly informed of the importance of:

      modelling safe road user behaviour

      parking vehicles safely outside the school and observing all parking signs

      ensuring that students are protected whilst traveling to and from school

      reinforcing the safety messages taught at school

      identifying and reporting safety issues in and around the school

      contributing to solving road safety issues that are of concern to the school and community

      Discretionary Basis

      The Principal has the right of discretion to make provision for departure from the policy or the application of the policy in the event of unforeseen and exceptional circumstances.

      • If students have them out during school hours
      • If students use them during school hours
      • If an incoming call is received during school hours

      In line with child protection laws, the school has a Visitors Policy. All visitors to the school  must report to the administration office prior to entering the school grounds. All visitors will be issued a Visitor’s Badge which must be worn at all times. When leaving the school visitors must also sign out.

      This procedure means that school staff are aware at all times of who is on the school grounds.
