Home Learning

At Aureus, we believe that home learning is an essential part of learning. It has huge potential to support our students outside of school as well as being able to know, understand and do more, well.

We want to encourage our students to become independent learners and be able to self-regulate their own learning. If Home learning is effective, it can lead to accelerated progress and research has shown a significant impact on secondary school students.

Home learning will be set with a clear purpose, in one of these four areas:

Home Learning

Nature
The nature of Home learning will vary between subjects, year groups and topics. The most effective tasks are those which are frequent, short and focussed and knowledge which is integral to lessons for example, we use recall checks at the beginning of every lesson. Some home learning may be embedding memory recall to support revision.

Frequency
Each Subject will set Home Learning, designed by their own department to best suit their curriculum at each Key Stage. For frequency of each subject’s Home Learning please refer to our guidelines below.

Duration
Home Learning duration guidance:

Key Stage Length of task
KS3 Up to 30 minutes
KS4 Up to 45 minutes


Setting Home learning
Home learning will be set via Google Classroom as an assignment or a quiz. It is the
responsibility of the student to click ‘Submitted,’ even if the work does not require a
document being uploaded onto Google Classroom and will be checked in the lesson.

Parents and Carers can become the guardians of their child’s Google Classroom and receive summaries of work set and submitted and ongoing deadlines.

If you have any questions regarding Google Classroom, please complete this online Google Form and we will endeavour to respond as quickly as possible.

We want to encourage students to continue to use our Knowledge Organisers provided to support memory recall. If students do not have access to internet at home, please ask your teachers to provide hard copies of work for Home Learning or students can access Google Classroom during the school day at break times.

In the downloads section below, you will find a number of documents and how to guides on Google Classroom.
