Home Learning


At Walthamstow School for Girls we are committed to providing valuable and meaningful home learning that supports and challenges our students.  We believe that the regular setting and completion of home learning is of vital importance in ensuring that every student achieves her full potential.                                                            


At WSFG we believe it is important that students have frequent and increasing opportunities to deepen understanding, broaden knowledge and consolidate skills learnt in class.  Effective Home Learning should enhance students’ education as we believe you must learn how to be independent, before you can independently learn.


Home Learning is any work or activity which students are asked to do outside of lesson time, either on their own or with others.

It contains an element of independent study in that it is not usually directly supervised by a teacher.  It requires careful planning and integration into the scheme of work of each curriculum area and is important in raising student achievement.


Valuable home learning helps students to build their GREEN values.  They learn to reflect on their learning and progress and develop into responsible and independent learners.
