Home/Remote Learning

At Bexhill Academy, we believe that high quality home learning, that is undertaken by our students independently and outside of the timetabled curriculum, will have a strong positive impact on their progress.

It will help them to achieve their full potential and allow them to become flexible, independent learners who are able to cope with the demands of a future working life.

We believe in this so strongly that the tasks we give to students are designed for them to learn at home, not work at home. Hence, our use of Home Learning alongside Homework. 

Benefits of Home Learning

  • Support the high-quality classroom learning that students receive.
  • Consolidate and extend learning covered in the classroom.
  • Prepare for new learning activities.
  • Develop a students’ independent learning and study skills.
  • Promote personal and independent research.
  • Development of other key skills such as time management, organisation, and self-motivation.
  • Encourage students to take ownership and responsibility of their learning.
  • Encourage parental support and cooperation.
  • Create channels for positive home-school dialogue.
  • Promote enjoyment of learning for learnings sake. 

Setting on Class Charts

Home Learning will be set in a variety of ways or on a variety of platforms; Google Classroom, paper copies, Seneca, Hegarty Maths etc. depending on what is most suitable.

However, in order for it to be a clear task for students and parents/carers to see, it will always be signposted on Class Charts.

Students will be awarded positive and negative points for the submission of their Home Learning. All of these, as well as the tasks set, can be viewed from the Class Charts parent app. 

Key Stage 3

Students will be provided with Home Learning weekly in the following subjects:

English, Maths, Science, History, Geography, and Languages

Home Learning tasks should last approximately 30 minutes. Any longer activities or tasks will be broken down into smaller accessible chunks to support students.

In all other subjects, students will be provided with home learning twice per term.

Key Stage 4

Students will be provided with home learning weekly in all subjects:

English, Maths, Science, and in each of their option subjects

Home Learning tasks should last approximately 30-45 minutes. Any longer activities or tasks will be broken down into smaller accessible chunks to support students.

Homework Club

There are support sessions that run in the library after school each day for all students 3:00pm -4:00pm. This is a great opportunity for your child to get their home learning done with extra support if needed.  

Many departments also offer their own subject specific clubs, speak to your child’s subject teacher for more information on these.
