In years 7 – 11, Independent Learning tasks are set on Microsoft Teams, which pupils access via their Office 365 accounts. This gives pupils access to Word, PowerPoint and Excel. By completing this Independent Learning, pupils are building on the skills they develop in lessons and consolidating their learning. After school Independent Learning Hubs are open every day from 3-4pm, for those who require additional support or access to technology.
In Key Stage 3, pupils will receive Independent Learning from a range of subjects. Pupils will also be encouraged to attend Flexible Learning clubs and activities.
In Key Stage 4, pupils are set Independent Learning tasks in all their subjects on a two-week timetable.
Completing each piece of work will take around 20-30 minutes at Key Stage 3 and 30-40 minutes at Key Stage 4. It will require pupils to work independently and will enhance, develop and deepen their understanding of the work that is being studied in class.
