The amount of home learning set for each subject is dependent on the three stages of the tasks but this should not exceed more than 30 minutes per subject to complete.

Class teachers will also award additional prizes for work handed in that demonstrates outstanding effort and progress. Each subject will provide clear success criteria as to how each level will be awarded.
