Home Learning is considered essential to consolidate work done at school, to prepare for future lessons, to research information and to practice skills learned at school. It is seen to be part of the pupil’s development in independent learning.
Pupils will be issued with a Home Learning timetable. As part of our drive to keep parents/carers informed of what is expected of your child we use ‘Show My Homework’, an online tool to help you keep track of your child’s home learning. Show My Homework will allow you to see details of the tasks your child has been set, all their deadlines and their submission status. The use of this system has facilitated communication with parents and afforded you greater awareness of the home learning we set.
Learning Resource Centre
The school Library and Learning Resource Centre is a central point of learning for the school. A broad range of learning resources are available to meet the demands of the curriculum and to stimulate interest in the enjoyment of reading for pleasure and extra curricular activities. Access to information technology facilities and an environment for independent learning is available along with a small shop selling stationary.
The Library is open to pupils during break and lunchtimes with lunchtime activities taking place on a regular basis. It also provides 6th form students with a large working area for private study in a quiet atmosphere.
