Home Learning

Home learning is a compulsory part of pupils’ academic work. Home learning tasks set by teachers have to be completed and handed in on time to them.

Pupils receive a diary in which to record home learning tasks, which parents and form tutors sign weekly. Home learning is planned by subject teachers according to the requirements of the syllabus and the stage reached within it. Home learning tasks may take the form of practice, preparation for classwork, individual research, learning basic information, or revision. Parents are urged to check diaries to support children in their learning.

Any resulting queries, should then be taken up at once with the appropriate Assistant Headteacher or learning manager. It is implicit in all this, that parents must themselves take an active responsibility for ensuring that pupils establish a regular pattern of homework.
