New Wave Federation schools believe that ‘Home Learning’ is an important part of school life, helping pupils to achieve their potential and develop crucial learning habits. Such tasks are designed to be an effective and beneficial part of, and aid to, the learning process reinforcing the achievements of our children.

Home Learning’ is seen as an integral and important part of the school’s home liaison policy and of the partnerships between teachers, pupils and parents.

Our teachers set ‘Home Learning’ tasks to;

  • help our pupils to become independent learners, and promote good habits of self-motivated learning for life
  • develop pupils’ skills of research, organisation and planning
  • enable children to practise, supplement, and develop activities carried out in the classroom
  • open up areas of study and to make possible the use of materials, sources of information and technology that are not accessible in the classroom
  • promote and widen an interest in the subject
  • involve parents, and other adults, in children’s work and offer advice on the most effective ways in which they could help the children

New Wave Federation schools set ‘Home Learning’ tasks regularly.  Mathematics and reading tasks are set each week and are monitored accordingly. The success of ‘Home Learning’ is related to quality and appropriateness rather than quantity.

IPC Topic and Extended Writing tasks embrace learning that develops naturally from that which is taking place in the classroom.  A ‘Home Learning Passport’ is sent home once per half term offering a list of suggested activities for the children to complete.  These activities are often practical and always incorporate different learning styles and interests.  Parents are actively encouraged to support our pupils with these tasks and to develop their children’s interests in new topics and themes.

We believe that ‘Home Learning’ should be flexible in nature to meet the demands and opportunities of a variety of curriculum areas and the world outside school. All children should expect a regular and consistent quantity of tasks to complete at home. There should be regular and purposeful feedback to pupils on the activities completed at home, depending on quality, frequency and consistency.

We strongly believe that ‘Home Learning’ should be a positive expectation on the part of teachers, pupils and parents to aid effective learning and personal development.
