Dear Families

Home Learning

At Beckfoot we believe that all our students are capable of greatness. Their chances of success are maximised when we work in partnership with them and their families. Home Learning is a vital element of that partnership and can significantly improve students' chances of success. With this in mind, I wanted to share with you our approach, and how you can support your child with their Home Learning.

What are Home Learning assignments?

Our teachers set Home Learning assignments which are designed to provide your child with opportunities to:

  • review and embed the learning that has taken place in class
  • research and explore ideas that help to prepare them for upcoming lessons
  • read and enjoy materials which will excite their interest and deepen their understanding.

These activities are mapped out in advance, and can be seen by looking at the Home Learning Maps for each subject which are published in the Home Learning section of our website here:

How can I see what specific Home Learning my child has been set?

Students are expected to write all their Home Learning assignments into their planners so that you are aware of what your child has to do, and can support them in meeting their deadlines.

What is self-quizzing?

Students are also expected to use their Knowledge Organisers to complete 20 minutes of self-quizzing per day, spread across all their subjects. This is vital to ensure that students are regularly reviewing current and past learning, so that they know more and remember more. Often, this will be directed by their teachers. As students become more independent, they will begin to direct this activity more for themselves. Students have all had training on how to do this, using the ‘Look, Cover, Write, Check’ technique. They have also been provided with Home Learning packs containing Knowledge Organiser booklets, and a self-quizzing exercise book for this purpose. A video explaining how self-quizzing works can be found in the Home Learning section of our website:

Where can I find out more?

Further information about how to support your child can be found in our ‘Making Home Learning Work’ document which can also be found on the Home Learning section of our website:

Where can my child receive support from school?

Your child is also welcome to attend our Homework Hub, which takes place in E13 every day except Wednesday, from 2.45 until 3.25, where we can provide a quiet and supportive environment for your child to work in.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support.

Kind regards

Kelly Heaton

Assistant Headteacher
