*Please note key stage 5 students will receive 5 hours of homework per subject each week.

Students are expected to complete their homework and meet the deadlines set by class teachers to ensure they can receive feedback. Any sanctions for missed homework will be logged on Bromcom.

Home learning 

Home learning is completed remotely at home, due to absences relating to COVID-19 or attendance reasons. This will support their return to class and ensure they do not miss out on learning. Teachers will upload the resources for their lessons each day they. This also enables you to support your child's learning at home. In addition, students have resources available to them, so they can: revisit prior learning, revise, prepare for assessments and support completion of homework.

 

Google Classroom

Google Classroom allows teachers to post announcements, assignments, ask questions and share resources. 

Should your child need support or have any queries they will be able to contact their subject teacher via Google Classroom.
