Home Learning


At Oak Academy, regular home learning will be appropriate for the age and stage of all students. In addition, it will have a particular focus on improvement and understanding of vocabulary and information retention. This will lead to increased depth of understanding in all lessons whilst linking to the substantive knowledge needed for academic and real world success.
