Questions to Support Learning

The homework model here at Kearsley Academy focuses on challenging all students in achieving their personal best academically and socially.
The Ofsted guideline is that homework needs to be set ‘appropriately and regularly across subject areas, which challenges all pupils. The model that we have designed encourages student’s enjoyment and fascination with learning. It is planned to allow students to achieve their personal best.
The map is divided into different levels of challenge, which begins at recall and extends to evaluation and creation.
The same map is used for ALL SUBJECTS.
