Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community

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, learn spellings and times tables daily.

In addition, they are given tasks to reinforce current topics at the Academy including in maths and English. These may be extended tasks over a period of time.

Home Learning during closures

Above is an example timetable that you may find useful to plan out your child/children's day.
