Learning at Home

At Cranfield Church of England Academy we do not do homework. Instead, we complete “learning at home”. The learning at home timetable is as follows:

A good, well-managed learning at home programme helps pupils to develop the skills and attitudes they will need for successful lifelong learning. Learning at home also supports the development of independent learning skills and provides parents with an opportunity to take part in their children's education.

Learning at home is an essential part of good education. Regular learning at home is important as it gives pupils the opportunity to practise at home the tasks covered in class, and helps the pupils work towards improving important skills. It also helps pupils to become confident and independent in their learning, which will help throughout their time at school and in adult life.

The following timetable details the expected learning at home in the Academy.
