In order to make the setting and monitoring of homework more effective at Thomas Telford UTC, we use ‘Show My Homework’ across our school. Show My Homework is a very simple web & mobile app that provides a convenient way for teachers to set homework and for students and their parents to monitor the homework set and any approaching deadlines.
All Thomas Telford UTC students are issued an SMHW account. To access the service:
It is highly recommended that students and parents/carers download the Show My Homework app, provided by 'Satchel:one', from within their device's app store for quick and simple access to the service. It is also advised to enable push notifications as this will allow the app to automatically inform you of tasks that have been set.
We believe that regular completion of a reasonable amount of targeted homework serves not only to give students a greater level of exposure to important course content but also to improve the independence and responsibility they take for their learning. We trust that you will support the school in this important element of your child's education by reminding them of their tasks and expectations, and by ensuring deadlines are met.
If you are unsure on how to use Show my Homework, please refer to the below documentation that will guide you into creating, setting up, and accessing your account.
