Home Work

We value the contribution that extended learning can make to the progress of our students. To have the maximum impact, it needs to be an integral part of the curriculum. It should be well planned to reinforce and extend learning from school to home, and it should prepare students for future learning. Extended learning develops the virtues of responsibility, independence, resilience, confidence and self-regulation. Extended learning can take a number of forms including topic based work, revision such as the use of GCSE Pod and Hegarty Maths and exam style questions at Key Stage 4.

 

Below lists the expected amount of extended learning that will be set. The guidance is approximate. On occasion this may be more or less. Maximum effort must be put into extended learning.
