Review amount of homework schools set and issue guidance limiting this

Petition Details

I’ve seen the amount of homework students are set and this needs to be reduced. Students have enough stress with their own lives and school to be doing additional work at home when they should be able to relax and see their friends. It's not fair on them.

Additional Information

I am a student myself and me and my friends are getting stressed and over worked, and often have no time to ourselves on weekends or out of school because of homework. The Government should review the amount of homework schools set and issue guidance limiting this to a reasonable level, which should be substantially lower than what is currently set by many schools.
