HomeLearning

We recognise that in its broadest sense home learning is any kind of learning which takes place out of school.
Teachers should recognise and encourage the range of learning activities available to children outside school e.g. sports clubs, uniformed organisations, clubs, community learning, outings etc and take every opportunity to recognise achievement from these activities and to celebrate success.

However, for our purposes we will consider home learning to be:

  • Tasks set by teachers and completed at home
  • Tasks that reflect or develop class learning and have clearly understood expectations regarding standards.
     

HOW CAN PARENTS SUPPORT OUR HOME LEARNING POLICY ?

1. By ensuring home learning is done while your child is alert.
2. By trying to provide a calm atmosphere with as few distractions as possible.
3. By discussing the work with our child and working along with him/her, especially at the early stages.
4. By checking that the quality and presentation is of an acceptable standard and signing the work.
5. By discussing any problems arising from home learning with the teacher (by appointment please).
6. By extending the work when appropriate perhaps by supplying a relevant book, visiting the library or a place of interest connected with the work.

ABOVE ALL BY SHOWING INTEREST AND PRAISING GOOD EFFORTS.

  • Teachers would appreciate it if homework jotters were covered and kept in a clean and tidy condition i.e. no graffiti
  • Your child will ask you to sign their homework jotter.
