Extended Learning & Homework

Extended Learning & Homework

Extended Learning is work, our students complete outside lesson time on their own, in groups or with parents. It is about promoting enjoyment and wellbeing, being creative and broadening students’ experiences. Homework is just part of extended learning.

Homework can actually be completed before school, at lunchtimes or after school in homework clubs. To help parents and students keep track, all homework is put on the website Show my Homework. Students and parents are given individual log-ons when they start at the school. . Our Extended Learning opportunities make our students confident, independent, inter-dependent, self-disciplined and effective life-long learners. Extended learning consolidates, reinforce skills and understanding learnt in class to enable our students to devote time to particular demands, such as GCSE coursework or project work.

Extended Learning & Homework

Types of Extended Learning

Homework might include such things as: watching video clips, listening to extracts, written assignments, extended writing, making models, reading, preparing presentations, and preparing for practical, research, coursework or assessment for example.

How much time should students spend on extended learning during week nights?

Students will need to learn to manage and plan their time so that they do some homework regularly each evening. Teachers will not set extended learning to be completed for the next day, but will give students at least two days to complete this. Time devoted to homework should increase as the student progresses through the school.
