Home Learning

Home learning has always been a vital part of a child’s development, and this is no different at secondary school. In fact, a department of education study has shown that pupils who regularly complete their home learning tasks achieve over a grade higher than those who do not. This has a particularly high impact when home learning is something that is completed together with parental engagement.

What sort of home learning will my child be expected to do?

Home learning will never be set just to follow a rigid timetable, we believe that home learning should complement the work completed in school, extend the learning within the subject of recap and revise past learning. As a guide, core subjects may set homework once or twice a fortnight and subjects with less timetable time perhaps once or twice a half-term.

The Accord Multi Academy Trust is an educational charity established in September 2016 that is currently made up of four academies who were the founding members of the Trust. In September 2016 Horbury Academy and Ossett Academy & Sixth Form College came together, moving away from their stand-alone Trust status and were joined in December 2016 by Horbury Primary Academy and Middlestown Primary Academy.

The overarching vision for the Trust is to work in one ‘Accord – celebrating the differences of each academy through strong collaboration in order to inspire all members of our learning community to be the best that they can be.
