Key Stage 3 Home-learning
Our home-learning policy has been reviewed in the light of parental requests. At Key Stage 3 all students are issued with a termly school diary and a folder. This forms part of their daily working records and enables pupils to keep together work sheets, reading books, Tracks work, etc. The diary contains space for any home-learning to be written in, it also contains a space for notes to and from parents. The student’s current and past targets will be attached inside the front cover. At the beginning of the academic year a home-learning timetable will be produced. The core subjects of English, Mathematics and Science will be set every week. Other subjects will set home-learning as appropriate. Those pupils involved with the Tracks programme will also receive home-learning weekly.
Key Stage 4 Home-learning
At Key Stage 4 all students are issued with a termly diary. This forms part of their daily working records. It contains space for any home-learning to be written in. It also contains a space for notes to and from parents. Pupils will be expected to write home-learning in their diary, even if they do not eventually complete it. Key Stage 4 diaries will be checked every two weeks by the form tutor. Parents will be informed if the diary is missing. A replacement can be bought from school.
At the beginning of the academic year a home-learning timetable will be produced. All groups within Key Stage 4 follow externally accredited courses. Home-learning set always underpins the work done in school and may be part of the assessed pieces for a course. It is therefore important that the home-learning is completed appropriately.
