At Townsend, we believe that positive attitudes towards home learning have positive impacts on student outcomes.
Home Learning enables students to take responsibility for their education, this helps develop their skills in self-management, independent learning and study skills. Home Learning is also beneficial for all students, as it helps to consolidate work they have been learning, and also prepare for future learning in the classroom. It enables them to prepare and to be informed.
- Class teachers will set Home Learning and deadlines on Google Classroom, with instructions, resources, explanations and links when/where required. They will check Home Learning is completed
- Students will complete Home Learning by the deadline in the way expected by their class teacher, if they need help or further explanation they will ask before the deadline
- Parents will ensure students are provided with an appropriate place to complete Home Learning effectively and/or encourage students to attend Home Learning club if needed
