At secondary school homework is a vital element in the learning process. Regular, structured tasks help to reinforce learning, inform and involve parents and promote independent learning skills that become invaluable as students progress through the school.
Homework is set against a homework schedule which can be found on this page.
We hope that all students have an appropriate space, away from distractions, in which to complete homework and that parents will encourage students to do so conscientiously and in sufficient detail. If students are struggling to complete homework at home then the library offers a well-resourced and quiet environment in which to do so.
The student planner provides a space for students to record all homework. However, since 2016 we have also subscribed to an online homework system called Show My Homework, which has proven invaluable in both supporting students in the completion of homework, and in monitoring the frequency and nature of homework set.
All homework is set via Show my Homework. The system ensures that each task is assigned to a specific class and has a submission deadline published. Teachers are able to explain tasks in detail and attach resources and/or web links to support their completion. Some homework can even be completed and/or submitted using the site.
The student login provides a personal homework calendar and to-do list for each child, and enables students to submit work online when needed. With a separate login parents are able to view homework for all their children and access wider features. Furthermore, a free App is available on Android and iOS that includes a clear to-do list plus notifications of what homework is due in the next day. If students or parents experience any issues with logging in to the system they should contact their child’s tutor in the first instance.
