Show My Homework
The Academy has an exciting new initiative that allows teachers, students and parents or carers to track and monitor homework set by the Cooperative Academy. We have invested in Show My Homework, which can be accessed via the school website. The site allows you to access your child’s homework which has been set each day without the need for a log-on or user name. This means you have access from any computer or mobile device that can access the internet. Show My Homework has launched an App which can be downloaded free of charge from Google Store.
Show My Homework is a fantastic resource that not only sets out homework but allows your child to access other visual media that will inform their learning. All staff can set high quality homework and extension tasks, whilst also creating links from the site to other useful resources. These include powerpoint, audio pieces and embedded videos. It also provides a countdown that will inform you of future homework due dates and deadlines which have passed. This will enable you to monitor and support your child in meeting homework and coursework deadlines.
Show My Homework does not replace the school planner, and this remains the primary tool for communication between school and home.
We will be trialling this with year seven students first, and then with other year groups very soon. Year seven students will receive a letter before the Christmas holidays, with details of how they and their parents can access Show My Homework.
Should you have any questions please direct these to Mr Rankin or the Show My Homework team. Please see below for the contact details.
