Home Learning

We are in the process of updating the information in this section – please check back soon or contact school if you have a query.

It is the school’s policy that all students are set home learning appropriate to their age and ability. The rationale behind home learning is that any extended learning opportunity should be meaningful, enjoyable and support their learning, whilst helping students to develop effective private study habits outside of school. This will encourage our students to become independent enquirers which is one of the key skills needed for further education and the world of work.

As there will be a wide variety of tasks set by teachers, the amount of time students spend on homework will vary, but as a general guide we would expect about one to one and a half hours of additional study per evening at Key Stage 3, and between one and a half to two and a half hours at Key Stage 4.

The schools weekly home learning timetable is in place as a guide to what can be expected each week, to help develop student time management skills. There may be times when project work is set over a longer period of time and therefore may not be set every week, but this will be recorded on show my homework. Students are expected to use show my homework to record homework at all times as this will aid organisation and strengthens the communication between home and school. Students will be given an appropriate deadline to complete the work (rarely for the next day), enabling students to self-manage their workload each week and start to learn the important life skills that are needed in the world of work.

Parents and carers can help staff and students by checking show my home learning and downloading the app on any smart device. All parents and carers will have specific log on details so they can track what home learning has been set for all of their children who attend BHS.   Students should check show my homework on a daily basis and can use the app as a way of communicating with teachers, if they do not understand a piece of home learning. We believe that show my homework helps provide parents and carers with a good understanding of the work taking place in school and leads to better outcomes for students. If students regularly complete their home learning to a high standard their academic results improve. A parent can make a huge contribution to a child’s future wellbeing by having high expectations with regard to the completion of home learning to a high standard. Please help by providing a suitable study environment with the necessary resources; by taking an interest and by encouraging and praising the effort your child is making.
