Home learning is an extension of the school programme and supports, enhances, and consolidates teaching and learning. It provides a positive link between home and school.
The class teacher:

- outlines and monitors the use of digital technology in home learning
- sets home learning that reflects students’ individual needs and changing ages and stages, and reinforces teaching and learning
- sets home learning which considers the key competencies of the New Zealand Curriculum, namely, managing self, relating to others, participating and contributing, thinking, and using language, symbols, and texts
- monitors home learning and provides constructive feedback to students and parents
- ensures students understand their home learning tasks and can work independently, where possible
- communicates home learning concerns to parents.
- are responsible for their own home learning
- understand their home learning tasks and work as independently as possible.
