Home Learning

“Homework which is planned is more beneficial than routine homework and not linked with what is being learned in class. It should never be used as a punishment or penalty for poor performance and that a variety of tasks with different levels of challenge is likely to be beneficial. The quality of homework is more important than the quantity. Pupils should receive feedback on homework, which is specific and timely. Teachers should also ensure that the purpose of homework is made clear to children.”

Home Learning is an important aspect of life at Castle Manor Academy. We believe that completing home learning is essential to the learning success of our students. Not only does it provide the opportunity to reinforce or extend learning from class, but it also develops the study habits and work ethic which are imperative for future success as independent and driven learners. Home learning should be an integral part of the learning experience that is planned in advance.
