Supporting home learning
We are grateful to parents and carers for supporting pupils and students in getting into good learning habits. Good learning habits include making time to read every day for 20 minutes, spending between 30-60 minutes on home learning tasks (for Year 7-9), and encouraging your child to make time to have a break and relax! All homework is recorded on Class Charts, for which both parents, carers, and pupils have an account. On here, you can see all homework for your child, along with issue and due dates.

Being well together…
All of us can feel overwhelmed at times. Looking after ourselves physically can not only benefit our bodies and make us healthier, it can also have a great impact upon our mental wellbeing.
Our health and wellbeing page has an number of resources sharing ways in which we can all stay active and healthy – with information for pupils, students and a dedicated ‘parent/carer corner.’
