At Oakbank School we believe that home learning is an integral part of education.
Home learning is set on a regular basis throughout the school. However, occasionally the class teacher/department may feel that home learning will not be necessary with a specific topic/skill. On these occasions we suggest students spend the recommended home learning time enjoying their current reading book.
Please note: We value the time of our students and their families and understand that good planning and organisation is important for academic success and wellbeing. Therefore, there will be no home learning set overnight, this includes a weekend. For example, work set on a Friday will not be expected in on the next working day i.e. Monday.
|Year group||Total per week||Home learning set|
|7||5 hrs||3 x 20 minute home learning tasks per night|
|8||7.5 hrs||3 x 30 minute home learning tasks per night|
|9||7.5 hrs||3 x 30 minute home learning tasks per night|
|10 and 11||10 hrs||3 x 40 minute home learning tasks per night|
Completing home learning
Providing that there are no extenuating circumstances, students must complete all set work. If a student does not understand the home learning they must see/email the member of staff concerned for assistance at least the day before the home learning is due in.
All home learning submissions will be recorded on Class Charts. If a pupil misses three home learnings, in any subjects, they must attend Home Learning Correction, for one hour, on the next school day for to help support the student with developing better home learning habits. They will spend their hour time catching up on their missed work, or if this has already been completed it will be used for completing the work set that day. The student will have a computer to work on and the room will be quiet allowing the student to concentrate on their home learning without interruption.
If a student has SEND needs, they will be invited to attend Home Learning Support with the SEND Team if they are struggling with their home learning.
