This policy takes account of the views of pupils, parents/carers and staff which were gathered as part of a consultation exercise in 2013. All members of staff have had the opportunity to discuss the policy and guidelines in draft form and contribute to the final version

Introduction

At Bloxham C of E Primary School we recognise the vital role parents play in the education of their children. All evidence shows that children progress more effectively with a strong home-school partnership. We strongly believe in the value of home-school partnership, of which our home learning policy is an important element.

HOME LEARNING - A DEFINITION

Home learning is defined as any learning or activities which pupils are asked to do outside lesson time, either on their own or with parents/carers. At Bloxham C of E Primary School we see learning at home as a valuable extension of the school day.

AIMS OF THIS POLICY

  • To ensure a consistent approach to home learning throughout the school.
  • To ensure that teachers, parents/carers and children have a clear understanding regarding expectations for home learning.
  • To ensure that teachers, parents/carers and children are fully aware of the role they play with regard to home learning.
