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:
Departments and other teams in school work together to ensure all students have every opportunity to access and complete the home learning.
Home learning students can expect to be set:
Home learning is set weekly for all students in years 7-13. Home learning will be set as and when appropriate and this will differ for each subject area.
- Years 7-9 will be set Science, English and Maths.
- Years 10-11 will be set home learning from their option subjects in addition to Science, English and Maths.
- Years 12-13 will be set 3-5 hours of independent study per subject being studied each week.
