Homework timetables and Show My Homework
It is the school’s policy that teachers set work to be completed out of lessons on a regular basis to improve a student’s learning. We use an electronic homework system called ‘Show My Homework’ (SMHW), which is designed to enable teachers to set homework and for students and parents to easily keep track of it.
Students will also be provided with a student planner for use alongside SMHW to access helpful academic information, eg world map, advice about keeping safe and mental health, school expectations regarding behaviour and uniform, to make notes and store a paper copy of their timetable. Parents/carers can check what work is set on SMHW and the planner can be used to communicate with the school.
Outside of COVID-19 there is usually a homework club every lunchtime and after school (until 4.15pm) in G18 for students requiring extra support and the Library and Resource Centre is also available every lunchtime as well as staying open until 4.45pm each evening - students are welcome to study here after school. Unfortunately, we cannot provide these at present because students would have to cross bubbles to use them.
Students can access 'Show My Homework' (https://www.showmyhomework.co.uk/login)
Parents are given personal log-in codes to access 'Show My Homework' and you will be able to see the homework that is set for your child.
Below are the KS3 homework timetables. KS4 and KS5 are set homework by their class teachers as required.
In the event of a period of remote education, due to COVID-19, all schoolwork and homework will be set for students using Google Classroom.
