Extended Learning

Extended Learning is key in supporting students at Crispin to progress. It also teaches the invaluable life skills of organisation, scheduling and prioritisation of tasks. At Crispin we promote 'flipped learning' in order to support our students to develop independence and foster a love of learning. Teachers can set tasks which encourage students to research topics or investigate new learning before it is then delved into in class. This way, students arrive at lessons informed and confident that they can contribute successfully to the direction of the learning. 

All students are issued with an Extended Learning schedule to follow. This will include a piece of extended learning from two subjects each day with the time allocation increasing as students move through the year groups. As a guide, a Year 7 student is expected to complete an hour of extended learning per day whilst a student in Year 10 and 11 is expected to complete two hours. All extended learning tasks will be set via Assignments on Teams and Parents and Carers will receive weekly updates informing you of your child's submissions. 

We subscribe to GCSEPod to further enhance revision and study skills which can be accessed by all students at Crispin. Students use their school email address and a password they have set to access the site.
