Supporting Learning at SRPA
Please find below the wide range of support available here at Sir Robert Pattinson Academy so pupils can achieve their best. The tabs below will provide further detail on the range of support mechanisms, advice and guidance available as well as what you can do to support your child throughout their studies with us.
The homework timetable supports students and parents to plan and organise their home study successfully. It encourages our students to develop their independent study and embed good learning habits.
By setting our homework on Frog we ensure clear communication is shared with students and parents, supporting meeting deadlines, sharing resources and providing opportunities for parents to encourage positive engagement with home study. More information on Frog and how to access it can be found at https://srpa.co.uk/about-us/advice-for-working-from-home/
