At Copley Junior School we believe that home learning is an enhancement of a child’s school work, providing a meaningful context for learning.
Our Home Learning Policy was formulated in consultation with the staff, our Parent Forum, the wider parent community and pupils of the school. The Parent Forum devised a questionnaire in order to consult with all parents/carers about their views of homework and how they would like to see it developed by the school. The children of the School Council devised a questionnaire which was completed by all the children in the school. The results were shared with the pupil and parent community and used to develop the policy, so that our approach best meets the needs of children, parents/carers and the school. We regularly consult with parents/carers and pupils to evaluate views about homework and adjust our homework provision in response.
Please find below our Home Learning Policy.
Our Learning Challenges Grid for each creative learning project gives children opportunity to develop independent learning skills and to present and develop home learning in their own way.
Please see below some examples of home learning tasks completed by children across school.

We encourage all parents to download the free app 'Seesaw'. This is a fantastic online tool which we use to post our home learning tasks so that all children have easy access to them. We encourage children to use Seesaw to share their home learning with their teacher. Uploading work will create an online journal so that your child has a record of their home learning. You can upload photographs, video clips, web links or scanned work to show your teacher your home learning. It is also a great way to share any other achievements out of school e.g. photos of football matches out of school, riding lessons, achievement of Brownie and Cub badges and any home activities that you wish to share with us.
Great examples will appear on the website and may even be shared on Twitter!
A guide to the use of Seesaw is provided below.
