Learning at Home
At Cranfield Church of England Academy we do not do homework. Instead, we complete “learning at home”.
We believe a good, well-managed learning at home programme helps pupils to develop the skills and attitudes our children 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 develop their skills across the curriculum – academic, creative, technological, active and more. It also helps pupils to become confident and independent in their learning, which will help throughout their time at school and in adult life.
Both of our children have been so motivated with their Home learning choices that they have spent the best part of the day working on two of the activities each. We have been able to enjoy this learning as a family and they have learnt so much through doing so, hitting so many different subjects & a range of skills. Thank you for motivating the children to develop independence, make choices and to allow families to enjoy learning at home without the pressure of completing prescriptive tasks each week. A very happy parent with our forward thinking school!
