What’s Home-Based Learning ( Homework) for?

Make sure you write down clearly what your Home-Based Learning is in your student planner. If you’re not sure, check the Show My Homework or ask the teacher who set it. Home-Based Learning can include opportunities for you to work independently including work you have not finished or missed through absence.

When should I give it in?

Write in your student planner when the work is due in. Check your diary every evening to make sure you have time to complete it.

Who can help me?

Teachers, parents, older brothers or sisters, grandparents, friends, librarians, etc. Any of these people could be a valuable source of information.

Where else can I get information?

Books, magazines, newspapers, television, radio, and the wealth of resources on the internet etc. You could use any of these to get useful information.

Where should I do my Home-Based Learning?

Try to find a quiet place with no distractions (no television, mobile off, games console off). This could be at home or at school. We run a homework club in BE1 from 3pm to 3.45pm Monday to Thursday


  1. Students who regularly complete Home-Based Learning are more successful in exams because they have developed more self-discipline and organisational skills.
  2. Presentation is important. Always do your Home-Based Learning as carefully as you can.
