Teaching & Learning: Homework at LHS

Litherland High School uses the program Class Charts to set homework. It allows staff to upload

homework quickly and easily. Students are issued with log in details and can access their homework tasks,

completion dates and relevant resources from the website. It allows parents/carers the opportunity to

support their child’s learning and be informed about the homework set.

Rationale:

Learning is a life-long process both inside and outside of school. We believe that homework provides

invaluable opportunities for students to engage with their learning outside of the classroom environment.

Homework aims to enhance the learning of students, assist their progress and allow for consolidation of

their work. It promotes independence, time management and drives students to take an active role in

their learning and in their progress.

Aims:




To encourage students to take more responsibility for their own learning.

To promote self-reliance and self-confidence and encourage the habit of independent learning.

To widen the learning experience by encouraging students to use materials and sources of

information not available in the classroom.

Allocated Homework Time:

The purpose and value of homework activities are more important than the precise amount of time

devoted to them. However, the time allocations indicated allow for meaningful tasks to be completed and

is a reasonable time in line with national average.

Key Stage 4 (Years 9,10 and 11)

Please Note: Departments may choose to set weekly tasks, daily activities or projects for homework.

Teaching & Learning: Marking and Assessment at LHS

The purpose and value of marking and assessment:








To support Litherland High School’s drive for outstanding learning and teaching.

To acknowledge the link between quality marking and excellent standards of attainment and

achievement.

To celebrate success.

To support student progress and independent learning.

To inform future planning, monitoring and appropriate intervention.

To indicate to students and their parents/carers how well they are progressing towards their target

and what they need to do to improve.

To assist students when preparing for public examinations.

Formative Assessment:

Formative assessment is an integral part of teaching and learning. It does not contribute to the final mark

given for the module; instead it contributes to learning through providing feedback. It should indicate what

is good about a piece of work and why this is good; it should also indicate what is not so good and how

the work could be improved. Effective formative feedback will affect what the student and the teacher do

next.

Summative Assessment:

Summative assessment demonstrates the extent of a student's success in meeting the assessment criteria

used to gauge the intended learning outcomes of a unit of work or programme of study and which

contributes to the final mark given for the unit. It is normally, though not always, used at the end of a unit

of teaching. Summative assessment is used to quantify achievement, to reward achievement and to

provide purposeful data.

High quality feedback consist of:





Written feedback on written work.

One to one conversations.

Individual and whole class verbal feedback.

Peer and self-assessment evaluations structured by teachers.

All teachers at Litherland High School should provide feedback that:








Is encouraging and constructive.

Supports students in the ‘next steps’ of their progress.

Is relevant to the learning objectives and success criteria.

Is explicit.

Makes comments directed as questions/ prompts to stimulate students to respond.

Allows students sufficient time to act on feedback.

Includes a balance of discussion and written comments.

6


Response and Progression Time:

Time must be built in to lessons and schemes of work to allow students to reflect and edit their work to

help move forward in their learning. Comments given by teachers need to be precise, specific and

appropriate to the student, subject and topic.

Students will comment on their work in response to their teacher’s points and will do this in red pen.

The time allocated can be at the beginning of the lesson, end of the lesson or set as a homework task but

it must give students the opportunity to action the recommendations of the teacher.

Verbal Feedback:

It is expected that oral feedback is given to students on a regular basis. This can be shown in books by

either the teacher comment or student response, however, it will sometimes be unnecessary to record

this and should only be done when appropriate to do so. Verbal feedback can be done as a class or on a

one to one basis and can be effective following a formative/summative assessment task. Whole class feedback

can be useful to share good practice of the work and for students to identify examples of high quality

work.

Personalised Study Support

Personalised study support sessions will be offered throughout the year for a range of subjects. Students

will be directed to attend sessions to enhance their progress. It is essential that students attend the

sessions that they are allocated, parental support is much appreciated.


Outcome for students: Progress

Changes to GCSE grading

GCSE grades for English Language, English Literature and maths changed in 2017. Most subjects will be

reported as a number ranging from 9-1. This approach will mean:






Broadly the same proportion of students will achieve a grade 4 and above as currently achieve a

grade C and above.

Broadly the same proportion of students will achieve a grade 7 and above as currently achieve an A

and above

For each examination, the top 20 per cent grades at 7 or above will get a grade 9 – the very highest

achievers.

The bottom of grade 1 will be aligned with the bottom of grade G

Grade 5 will be positioned in the top third of the marks for a current Grade C and bottom third of

the marks for a current Grade B. This will mean it will be of greater demand than the present grade

C.

standards of behaviour. By monitoring and tracking students, Behaviour & Welfare Officers provide early

intervention to help improve behaviour and progress. They encourage students to value their education,

rarely miss a day off school and be punctual to school and lessons. Safeguarding students is a priority,

ensuring students are safe and feel safe at all times. Behaviour & Welfare Officers support students with

their emotional and mental wellbeing and sign post to professional services when required.

Mobile Phones

Students may bring mobile phones to school but they are to be kept out of sight throughout the entire

day including when leaving the building. Any student using a mobile phone on the school premises will

have it confiscated for the day. Parents/guardians will be asked to collect mobile phones should a

student continue to use it in school hour detention after school that day.

13


Student Support

Ready to Learn Card

To ensure standards of uniform are maintained, each student will carry a Ready to Learn Card. If uniform

is being worn incorrectly or make up or jewellery worn, a member of staff will sign and date the card. If

the card is signed three times, a detention will be arranged by the student’s Behaviour & Welfare Officer.

Uniform Agreement Card

If a student has a serious issue with uniform, such as the need for a new pair of shoes, the tutor or

Behaviour & Welfare Officer will issue a ‘Uniform Agreement Card’. This card clearly states the issue and

the date by which the matter will be expected to be resolved.

Responsibility for Learning Room

If a student chooses to disrupt the learning of others, not engage in learning or stops the teacher from

teaching four times they will be withdrawn from the lesson. The student will be taken by a member of

staff to the Responsibility for Learning Room and will stay there for the lesson they were withdrawn from

and the following lesson (including break and lunchtime). The student will then complete a one hour

detention after school that day.

14


Promoting regular attendance:

Helping to create a culture of engagement and success through good attendance is the responsibility of

parents and carers, students and all members of school staff. Ensuring regular attendance at school is

the legal responsibility of parents and carers. By law, all children of compulsory school age must attend

school. Poor attendance not only undermines a child’s education and future life chances, it can also put

children at risk and there is some evidence to suggest it can lead to anti-social behaviour.

Parents and carers should:









Familiarise themselves with the school’s Attendance Policy.

Ensure their children attend school regularly and punctually.

Contact school on the first and each subsequent day of absence.

Provide a note if their child needs to leave school during the day for any reason which will be

exchanged for an Exit Note.

Contact school early where problems with attendance are emerging.

Support the school in intervention and action plans, including attendance meetings as required.

Participate in Attendance Panels/Parenting Contracts.

Avoid taking holidays during term time.

Students must:

Attend registration and lessons punctually. Students are expected to be in class by 08.50.

Meet or exceed the Government’s minimum individual attendance requirement of 95%.

Provide a note of explanation to the school office from a parent/carer on the day of return after a

period of absence.

Participate fully when action plans are put in place.

Collect an Exit Note from the Attendance Officers if they need to leave school during the day.

Report to the school office if leaving (with an Exit Note) or arriving at any time during the school

day.

School will:

Provide an education which prepares students for the opportunities, responsibilities and

experiences of life.

Promote a culture across the school which identifies the importance of regular and punctual

attendance.

Reward good or improving attendance.

Make attendance and punctuality a priority for all students, parents and carers, teachers and

governors.

Promote and further develop positive and consistent communication between home and school.

Operate a robust absence management system.

Actively discourage holiday absence or extended leave of absence during term time.

Operate a consistent approach to applications for leave of absence during term time, working

within the Government guidelines and statutory targets.

Attendance Stages Protocol

Litherland High School is committed to providing a positive and productive learning experience for all its

students. Attendance at school is the primary and most critical factor in ensuring this can take place. The

following ‘Attendance Stages Protocol’ is designed to clarify the steps school will put in place to address

concerns about the attendance, and consequently the learning and progress, of individual students.

Attendance Stage 1:

If a student’s attendance is between 97% - 100% they will be closely monitored by the form tutor and

encouraged to maintain high attendance.

Attendance Stage 2:

If student’s attendance is between 95% - 96.9% they are at risk of underachievement and will be closely

monitored by the Behaviour and Welfare Officer to address any issues which emerge to improve attendance.

Parent will be contacted.

Attendance Stage 3:

If a student’s attendance is between 93% - 94.9% they are at serious risk of underachievement and will

be closely monitored and tracked by the Head of Year. Parent will be required to attend an Attendance

Review meeting to discuss attendance and the impact on student progress. Individual barriers to

learning will be identified and an Attendance Support Plan will be drawn up.

Attendance Stage 4:

If a student’s attendance is between 90% - 92.9% they are at risk of severe underachievement and will

continue to be closely monitored by the Senior Parent/Student Support Officer and Senior Leadership

Team. Parent and students are required to attend an Attendance Panel meeting with SPSSO and SLT. A

Fixed Penalty Notice may be issued. The Local Authority will become involved and will commence legal

proceedings. The Fixed Penalty Notice is a fine of £60 to be paid within 21 days or £120 if paid up to 28

days after issue. If the fine is not paid after 28 days, Government guidelines stipulate that prosecution

and a court appearance may follow.

Attendance Stage 5:

If a student’s attendance is between 0 – 89% they are at extreme risk of underachievement and will be

closely monitored by the SPSSO, SLT and Education Welfare Service. Parent and student are required

to attend a Local Authority Attendance Panel which may result in court action. Fixed Penalty Notices

will continue to be issued. Students may be deemed to be at risk of neglect due to the parents failure to

carry out their legal responsibilities in ensuring their child’s right to an education is fulfilled. In order for

the school to fulfill its duty of care any Safeguarding concerns will be reported to Social Care on the basis

of neglect.

With regard to unauthorised absence, the school can request a Fixed Penalty Notice at any time in

accordance with the Code of Conduct produced by Sefton Council.

At any point in this process, a student may be moved to a higher or lower Attendance Stage

should it seem appropriate or necessary to do so and particularly where concerns escalate

rapidly.

16


The Impact of Absence on Learning

Days absent… Which is approximately

weeks absent…

95% 10 days 2 50

Attendance during one

school year…

Which means this number

of missed lessons…

90% 20 days 4 100

85% 30 days 6 150

80% 40 days 8 200

75% 50 days 10 250

70% 60 days 12 300

65% 70 days 14 350

This chart shows that someone who is absent for 10% of one school year will miss 100 lessons. Students

at Litherland High School now begin Key Stage 4 in Year 9, so a person who missed 10% each year would

lose the learning from 300 lessons. A student with 85% attendance would lose 450 lessons.

A great deal of research has been commissioned on the impact attendance has on attainment. The latest

figures are for the GCSE results of 2012-13 for research presented in October 2014. This shows that for

students with less than 4% absence over the whole of Key Stage 4, 75% achieved five or more A*-C

grades including English and Mathematics, for those absent 6-10% of the time the figure was 55% and it

was 21% for those absent 20-30% of the time. For those who were only present for half their lessons,

only 4% achieved five or more A*-C grades including English and Mathematics. Students with poor

attendance are therefore almost certain to perform significantly less well in their exams than they would

do otherwise. They are at a disadvantage compared to students who attend regularly, even if they would

expect to do better based on performance at a younger age. In stark terms, those who attend more will

get better qualifications and can expect to get better, higher paid jobs with all the benefits that that entails

for their futures. In the case of genuine illness this is unavoidable, but where parents and carers have

failed to ensure attendance at school, it is a matter which requires very clear and honest reflection and

which demands action from the school and other organisations and agencies concerned with child

welfare.

17


E-Safety

Mobile phones and computers are a source of fun, entertainment, communication and education.

However, we know that some adults and young people will use these technologies to harm children. The

harm might range from sending hurtful or abusive texts and emails, to enticing children to engage in

sexually harmful conversations online, webcam filming, photography or face-to-face meetings. The

school’s e-safety policy) explains how we try to keep students and staff safe in school. Cyber-bullying by

students via texts and emails, will be treated as seriously as any other type of bullying and will be managed

through our anti-bullying procedures.

Chatrooms and social networking sites are the more obvious sources of inappropriate and harmful

behaviour and students are not allowed to access these sites in school.

If you would like any help or support with any aspects of E-safety the following websites offer excellent

parental guidance.

CEIAG: Post-16 Further Education and Training

Information for Students

Raising participation legislation requires you to continue on in education or training until at least your

18th birthday. Post-16 education and training providers vary so it is important to do some research and

think about where you would like to attend. This will be discussed and explored in detail during your

Careers Guidance interviews to support you to achieve a successful post 16 transition at the end of

Year 11.

Sixth Form

Attached to a high school.

Deliver level 3 courses only, these are normally A levels.

College of Further Education

Larger than a sixth form.

Deliver a wide range of courses including diplomas and A levels.

There are college courses for all levels of learners.

Steps to applying

At the start of year 11, you will be informed about 6th form and college open days. It is extremely useful

to visit a number of different providers. You can take your parents, carers or friends with you.

At the start of year 11, there will be presentations from local colleges and 6th forms in school.

You will have accessed Careers Guidance interviews and drop ins to discuss and explore your individual

pathway options.

You will have attended a variety of events to inform you about different post-16 provision such as taster

fairs and careers fairs.

When you have decided which course/s you want to apply for, complete the application form (this may

be on paper or based online). Deadlines vary but most should be completed by the end of January.

19


What can I do next?

After successful completion of a level 3 qualification, you could progress on to higher education and

access a foundation or honours degree.

Alternatively, you could progress on to a higher level apprenticeship or seek employment.

Apprenticeships

An apprenticeship is a job, with training, for which you will be paid a training wage.

Apprenticeships last 1-4 years and you will spend time working with your employer and also studying at a

college or training provider for work-related qualifications.

There are three levels of apprenticeship

Intermediate level apprenticeship – level 2 Advanced level apprenticeship – level 3 (equivalent to 2

A level passes)


Higher apprenticeships – Level 4 and above.

What are the entry requirements?

Some employers don’t ask for specific qualifications, but will expect you to have reasonable GCSE grades

in English and Maths, and perhaps other subjects too. Employers will also expect you to be interested and

keen to learn, so it is important that you ensure that an apprenticeship is for you. Applying for an

apprenticeship can be competitive, so try and collect as much information as you can. If you have not

achieved a minimum of a grade 4 in English and Maths you will be required to continue with these

subjects as well as your work related qualification.

What qualifications can I get?

On an apprenticeship you will work toward work-based learning qualifications such as an NVQ level 2,

functional skills and, in some cases, job-relevant qualifications such as a BTEC. The main qualification you

will achieve is the apprenticeship Framework Certificate which will license you to practise or work in the

trade you have learnt. All apprenticeships must include qualifications to show that you understand the

industry and that you can do the job competently.

20


What can I do next?

From an apprenticeship you could go onto the advanced level apprenticeship. In the long term you could

do a higher apprenticeship and may progress to a part time Foundation or Honours Degree.

There are apprenticeships in different job areas such as:














Accounts, Finance

Business and Administration

Childcare

Construction

Customer Service, Retailing and Wholesaling

Engineering

Hairdressing and Health and Beauty

Hospitality and Catering

IT

Manufacturing

Motor Vehicle

Travel and Tourism

Transportation

Where can I find an apprenticeship?

The National Apprenticeship Service is aimed at people looking for information and opportunities, so visit

the website to find out more information and to search and apply for apprenticeship vacancies:

www.appreticeships.org.uk. You will complete a CV which will enhance your application.

All students who wish to access an apprenticeship must also apply to college or 6th form. To ensure that

you have a guaranteed progression route in place. College and 6th forms applications are completed

(generally) by the end of January whilst apprenticeships are not usually advertised until later in the year.

Traineeships

Traineeships are a new programme for young people who want to work, but who need extra help to gain

a apprenticeship or job. Traineeships provide an opportunity to develop the skills and workplace

experience that employers require. Traineeships are available for 16 – 23 year olds (up to 25 for young

people with learning disabilities). Traineeships fit within broader study programmes for 16-19 year-olds.

Careers Education Information Advice and

Guidance (CEIAG)
