The Governors and staff of Shorne Church of England Primary School believe that home learning is an important aspect of a child’s education. We believe it encourages children to realise that learning can take place outside the classroom as well as promoting independent learning to consolidate, deepen understanding and prepare children for work to come. Home learning allows parents, carers and the school, to work in partnership for the benefit of their child. This policy is based on the belief that every child should be set high expectations and has the highest of aspirations in their learning. From parent surveys we have noticed most parents do appreciate the value and importance of this home learning however a few feel that we do not set enough, whilst others feel there is too much. The amount and type of home learning we set is at a level which we believe to be reasonable and manageable as well as in line with the guidance provided.
