Home learning is an essential part of the curriculum as it consolidates learning in class as well as helping students to build resilience and independence. Students are given weekly home learning tasks across all their subjects. The tasks can be accessed via ‘foldr’ through this website. Students need to log on using their usual school log-ins and then go to the ‘Home Learning’ folder and then the relevant year group folder. Class teachers will provide specific deadlines and check that work has been completed. This information will be communicated to parents through GoForSchools. Teachers will give praise points for good work produced. Progress leaders will oversee the completion of work across the subjects. As well as this, we recognise that reading is a vital skill which helps students to progress in all subjects. Reading fluently also increases students’ overall well-being. Therefore, we require that all students read for at least 30 minutes every day. There is an advice sheet for parents in ‘foldr’ as well as a reading book list and reading log sheet. We ask that all parents encourage their children to read as much as possible both fictional and non-fictional texts. Please contact your child’s tutor if you have any questions about home learning.
