Home Learning

Home learning 

Walkwood Church of England Middle School will follow the steps outlined in the home learning policy in the event of partial closure for a year group or full closure. The intention is for learning can continue and that progress can be being made. 

We shall: 

  • set assignments so that pupils have meaningful and ambitious work each day in a number of different subjects, planning a programme that is of equivalent length to the core teaching pupils would receive in school and broadly following the curriculum that would be taught in school; 

  • provide a planned and well-sequenced curriculum so that knowledge and skills are built incrementally, with a good level of clarity about what is intended to be taught and practised in each subject; 

  • gauge how well pupils are progressing through the curriculum; 

  • teachers are to adjust the pace or difficulty of what is being set in response to questions or assessments including, where necessary, revising material or simplifying explanations to ensure pupils’ understanding. 

Home Learning


As a school we will be using ePraise primarily to set our home learning tasks for pupils. 


Home learning is intended for use when a pupil cannot attend school due to a medical reason. The anticipated period of absence should be a week or more. It is not for situations where a parent or carer cannot get the child to school.
