All year 7 & 8 students follow a Home Learning timetable and all Home Learning tasks for the term ahead are available online via the school Virtual Learning Environment (VLE), called Frog.
These activities will provide opportunities for students to develop skills to learn independently. All students are given the same activity to complete but the tasks are very open-ended and so support students of all abilities. Challenge is also built in by giving students ideas of what outstanding Home Learning consists of.
Students may have a choice as to the way that they present their work, making full use of ICT where appropriate. Subject areas also provide resources to help students.
Due to the nature of Languages, Maths and Art and the way in which students learn in these subjects, home learning tasks need to be more regular and so consist of short fortnightly home learning.
Below is an example of a term's Home Learning schedule:
