Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community


We expect children to reinforce and extend the learning they are doing in the Academy at home. To this end, we set regular home learning tasks. The amount of time children are expected to spend on formal learning at home increases as they go through the Academy.

Children are expected to read and learn spellings and times tables daily. In addition, they are given tasks to reinforce current topics at the Academy, focused primarily on tasks in Maths and English. These may be extended tasks over a period of time.

All children from Reception upwards have a separate reading record. We expect them to read three times a week at home and we will hear every child read at least once a week. Targeted children will be heard read three times a week by an adult.
