Rhyl High School firmly believes that pupils need to be true independent learner. They need to learn to manage their own time effectively to achieve the outcomes they are capable of. Therefore as a school we expect pupils to understand that learning does not stop at the end of the school day.
We therefore expect pupils to complete self-study within the following framework
· Year 7 – 3x 30 minute sessions per week
· Year 8 – 3x 30 minute sessions per week
· Year 9 – 3x 45 minute sessions per week
· Year 10 – 3x 60 minute sessions per week
· Year 11 – 3x 60 minute sessions per week
In some cases work will be provided by your child’s classroom teacher for completion; however, this is only where this is appropriate and challenging. In many cases, pupils need to direct their study themselves.
To support self-study RHS will prove a ½ termly overview of areas to be covered in all subjects within our curriculum and links to areas to support this learning. This ensures every child can engage every week with an appropriate amount of self-study and learn how to prepare themselves for the organisations, dedication and hard work of year 10 and 11.
