At Kingsdale Foundation School, homework is set regularly in line with our published homework timetables. The homework timetables show the last day each when homework for a particular subject should have been set by the class teacher. Please be advised that subjects that are taught for one lesson a week, such as PSHE/Citizenship or Religious Education, will usually set homework on alternate weeks to allow sufficient time for completion and marking.
The latest Homework Timetables can be downloaded via the link at the bottom of this page.
Online Homework Portal - Show My Homework
To ensure parents are able to effectively support their child/ren with homework completion, all tasks set by class teachers are recorded on our online portal provided by Show My Homework - www.showmyhomework.com
Using this system, parents are able to log in to view the individualised homework set for each class timetabled for their child. Letters have been sent to all parents detailing how they can access the personalised homework timetable for their child/ren from September 2016.
The login page for students/parents can be accessed via the website www.showmyhomework.co.uk Technical and logging in support, including retrieval of logging in details, is available by via email email@example.com or by calling 0208 670 7575 Ext 734.
During the academic year 2016-17 we are trialling online mark books via Show My Homework for some subjects, which will enable parents to see whether their child has submitted the set homework on time and the mark awarded. Students will have been informed as to which classes this trial is currently taking place in. It is expected that this system will be extended to the wider school from September 2017.
School Homework Expectations
Students are expected to take care and pride over their homework tasks. All homework completed must be headed by a clearly underlined titled, a date and the code H/W to signify that this is a homework task. Homework completed on paper should be neatly secured into the student exercise book or folder as soon as possible. Loose sheets should not be stored in student exercise books or folders.
While all homework tasks are available via the ShowMyHomework online portal, they are encouraged to record all homework tasks set in lessons in their personal school journal. This ia to ensure students develop skills as self organisation.
All homework queries can be directed to our dedicated homework email address at firstname.lastname@example.org This email can be used to clarify particular homework tasks or to advise staff of particular circumstances or issues pertaining to subject homework. Please ensure that the name of the teacher who set the homework, along with the student's name, are clearly included in the subject line of the email query.
