As a school, we recognise the value of homework and the positive effect it has on learning and building student resilience. We have been using Show My Homework as our on-line homework since September 2014. All homework will be recorded in Student Planners even if it is on Show My Homework.
The site allows students to access their homework either:
- By logging-in with their user name and password. This will provide them with a personalised calendar showing only their homework. Students will receive their user name and password from their form tutor.
- By viewing the whole-school homework calendar and filtering by subject or teacher. This does not require a log-in.
Students can also download a Show My Homework app for their mobile phone/tablet (from the Apple App Store or Google Play) that can alert them when homework has been set.
As is evident, the aim of the site is to ensure that students can access their homework easily. It should also be said that it allows less room for “I didn’t know we had homework” and other similar excuses!
Obviously, we also encourage parents to use the website so that they can monitor the range of homework that their son/daughter has been set.
