Show my Homework Explained
Show My Homework is an online homework planner which ensures homework is set effectively across the school. Students have easy access through computers, tablets, or smart phones, enabling them to see and prioritise their workload using their personalised calendar. Parents also have access to their own Show My Homework Account, allowing them to play a more active role in home learning. Students will still use their planners to record that they have homework in specific subjects but full details, resources and links to helpful web sites will be available to Show My Homework. The Show my Homework link is here
