Home Learning


The purpose of home learning at Sheffield Park Academy is to consolidate, improve and extend the learning that takes place in the classroom. Home learning supports the development of learning behaviours, develops confidence and supports students to achieve to the best of their ability. 

Supporting students with home learning completion: 

All colleagues work together to ensure all students have every opportunity to access and complete the home learning.

Students can use the LRC before and after school if they need computer access to complete their tasks. Students with additional needs can access the Bridge at break and lunch to complete their home learning.

There are additional lunchtime sessions for all year groups.
