Home Learning

At St Catherine’s, we strive to prepare pupils for the challenges of the next stage in their education, as well adult life. We don’t want to spoon feed our children; instead we seek to instil a love of learning, proactive attitude, creativity and thirst for knowledge.

We do not set weekly ‘homework’. Our pupils are encouraged to complete ‘challenges’ and present their learning in innovative, personal and creative ways. We are regularly astonished by the degree to which they go ‘above and beyond’ exceeding our expectations. For more information please see our Home Learning Policy.


As part of our Covid-19 measures, Home Learning should be uploaded to Google Classrooms, not brought into school. We will still be celebrating the pupils’ wonderful work during our class Achievement Assemblies and with Headteacher’s Awards.

We view all learning as good learning. Although we have provided traditional curriculum provision during lockdown, we also want to celebrate learning in all its forms. Our families have been encouraged to take our emphasis on practical, real-life experiences and run with it! Watch our video for a celebration of Lockdown Home Learning at St Cath’s.

We are excited when our pupils take the opportunity that Home Learning affords to be really creative. It is their learning journey, and we love what they produce! Here are some examples of their incredible work!
