Show My Homework
For some time now parents have quite rightly been raising with us the issue of lack of recording of homework in planners and we are very happy to let you know that we have found a 21st Century solution to a very 20th Century problem!
Cove School has joined forces with Show My Homework, an online homework information platform. All students have been issued with student and parent login PIN letters so homework can be easily accessed at home. The school homework calendar is available for anyone to view but parents will need their own PIN to access their particular child’s homework calendar. A free app can also be downloaded for Apple and Android devices.
As well as making the frequency of homework setting crystal clear, Show My Homework also allows teachers to give more detailed instructions than the planners allowed. Helpful resources (eg. lesson powerpoints, video clips) can be uploaded to your child’s homework calendar by their teachers to support their completion of homework and your understanding of it.
Every student should receive homework every week in each of their timetabled subjects. The only exceptions are subjects where there is only one timetabled period per week (eg. RE) and in this case homework should be set fortnightly. Although school planners are no longer used to record homework they can still be used to pass messages on to tutors.
If you or your child misplaces their SMHW PIN, just email our librarian at firstname.lastname@example.org for a reminder. If you have any other comments about SMHW or homework more generally please feel free to let me know at email@example.com
