Robert Bloomfield

Home Learning

The expectation at Robert Bloomfield Academy is that each pupil reads every evening, either independently or with an adult. Reading regularly has a significant impact on outcomes, mindfulness and language acquisition.

Where possible, home learning will utilise technology, with tasks being set online where possible through Google Classroom and any other relevant platform. A brief description will be set on SIMs so that parents are aware and can support their child to effectively manage and organise their completion of tasks.

There may be points in the academic year that departments set revision-based homework to support assessment points. This will be in addition to the homework timetable currently in place.
