    Launch of the Homework Zone

    This academic year we are launching the homework zone in the school library on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday afternoons between 3.20 - 4.15pm. Pupils who regularly complete homework that is set to support, consolidate, apply learnt knowledge and skills as well as challenge their thinking through open questions and projects usually make expected or accelerated progress over a period of time.

Since September 2017 the children have displayed a positive attitude to learning and throughout the year their resilience and ability to reflect on their learning has developed.
