Independent Learning Challenges

An approach to setting homework at Key Stage 3 which we believe is better for students, clearer for parents to understand, and a more effective preparation for GCSE and beyond.

All students in Years 7 and 8 are set ILCs alongside traditional short separate homework tasks in nearly all subjects.  Maths, Science, English and Foreign Languages continue to set weekly homework tasks.  All other subjects set ILCs designed to take up to, but no more than six hours to complete.

All ILCs will be graded for effort using the five point scale below;

Grade Criteria Achievement Points
1 An outstanding piece of independent learning, demonstrating your very best effort. Wonderful. 5
2 A good piece of independent learning, showing that you fulfilled the time expected. Understood the task and outcome is well presented. 2
3 An inconsistent piece of independent learning, showing that you completed the work, with some effort, however improvements could be made.  
4 A poor piece of independent learning, which looks as though not enough time and effort was spent on it.  
5 No work was submitted.
