Home Learning

Well organised home learning plays a vital role in raising standards of achievement and developing successful lifelong learners.

What students can expect

  • Students will experience a range of learning tasks matched to what they are learning.
  • These will include consolidation exercises, practice, preparation, research and independent projects.
  • All project work will have clear milestones following the agreed home learning timetable for the class.
  • Tasks may be  personalised to suit students’ abilities or a range of options offered.
  • At KS4 and KS5, home learning tasks will also include coursework, controlled assessment preparation, exam practice and revision.
  • We now use ClassCharts for home learning.  Follow the link to the website: https://www.classcharts.com/ and log in using the details that we email to parents. If you would like these re-issued or help with it please contact:  classcharts@theangmeringschool.co.uk.

How often they can expect it

  • At KS5, home learning will be set every lesson, up to a maximum of 3 hours per day.
  • At KS4, home learning will be set every week for each subject, up to a maximum of 2 hours per day.
  • At KS3, home learning will be set weekly for core subjects and fortnightly for foundation subjects, up to a maximum of 1 hour per day.

How will you know if your child has home learning to do

  • Students need to  check their home learning every day on ClassCharts. They should plan ahead and make a note of home learning deadlines. This is particularly important if a piece of work is set over two or more weeks, or is an ongoing home learning task that may be updated.  All of this can be checked on ClassCharts.
  • Please do check on ClassCharts as detailed above.

Feedback on Home Learning

  • Teachers are expected to give feedback on home learning promptly. Please let us know if you have any concerns regarding this.
  • Feedback will take a variety of methods including peer and self assessment, oral and written comment from the teacher.
  • It is the teacher’s responsibility to manage the non-completion of home learning, liaising with parents where necessary.
  • All academic reviews have a range of four descriptors on home learning efforts: Excellent, Good, Inconsistent or Poor.

We value your feedback on all elements of home learning. Please contact us by email, telephone or in person.
