Home-learning is an integral part of teaching and learning at Holy Family; pupils are expected to work independently outside the classroom.
Home-learning is set on a weekly basis on Class Charts (or fortnightly for some subjects which have less contact time in KS3: IT, Music, Art, Drama, History, and Geography). Core PE does not set home-learning. Each week, home-learning is checked by the teacher. Guidelines are:
|KS3||30-45 minutes per subject|
|KS4||45-60 minutes per subject|
|KS5||no specific time allocation, but weekly|
Each student has received a copy of their timetable to stick into their diary; electronic copies are available via the links below.
The SEN department identify pupils who require extra support for homelearning and provide assistance through homework club; they liaise with departments regarding work for these students.
Parents and carers can help their children to make progress by providing a reasonably peaceful, suitable place where they can do their work, to check their Class Charts schedule, and to monitor the standard of their child’s work.
