After School Responsibilities

After School Responsibilities

This document asks students to map out their after school responsibilities to help them plan when and where they can best do their homework. 

It focuses on:

  • Time you got home.
  • Non-homework responsibilities / events.
  • Homework: : subject, time started, time finished, when you received the homework, when the homework is due, if the homework is linked to an assessment or not.
  • Free time: the start and finish times of your free time.
  • Time you went to bed.

I get students to fill this in for a week and then meet them to review what they have found in order to create a sustainable timetable that works for them.

I share this with the students` form tutors and subject teachers to give them an overview of the responsibilities each student has after school. 

This document is also shared with parents during parent workshops. I advise parents to go through the findings with their child to work out best ways forward to help with their organisation.
