Learning Contract 2018/19

  1. Students should arrive to lesson promptly as the beginning of a lesson serves as a foundation to the rest of the lesson. Students missing the initial ten minutes of a lesson may find it difficult to cope with the work covered in the remainder of the lesson.
  2. Students receive homework each week and are expected to hand it in the following week. The results of homework are tracked and are used to plan for future teaching. Homework should be completed soon after (within 48 hours) the lesson to ensure the work is still fresh in their minds. Failure to complete homework to a satisfying standard will significantly reduce the amount of progress your child makes.
