Show My Homework

Show My Homework 

This year we will be using Show My Homework, an online tool to help students and parents monitor their homework. Initially we are trialling it with Years 8 and 11 with plans to roll it out to all of KS3 and KS4 later in the term. 

All homework for Years 8 and 11 will therefore be set via Show My Homework.  Students will be shown how to access their homework in lessons. They will also be given their own log in details in order to access their individual accounts.

In addition to this over the next few weeks subject areas may start to set homework for Years 7, 9 and 10 in the same way. In these cases the subject teacher will inform the class so that they know how and where to look for their work.

Setting homework online will mean that students no longer need to record it in their planners. Therefore, we will no longer be asking parents and tutors to sign them on a weekly basis. However, planners may still be used for home school communication.

Facilities will be made available in school for students to check their homework before school, during lunch and at the end of school should they wish to. 

If for any reason your child is unable to use Show My Homework or you do not have access to the internet at home please let us know. 

Show My Homework also provides parent/carer accounts linked to your child’s homework calendar. These logins will be sent out initially to parents of Year 8 and 11 students, in due course.

Once you have received your individual account details you will then be able to use the login feature and view your child’s individual homework.

Show My Homework provides:

  • 24/7 access
  • View quality and quantity of homework
  • Translation into over 50 languages
  • Free apps available for iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch and Android devices
  • Receive automated notifications before homework is due

 
If you or your child have any questions or require further information about this please contact Mr A Wall on [email protected] or via the school on 01636 814000.
