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 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 students of the UTC are provided with an account for SMHW, all that is required of the student is that they select the 'Sign in with Office365' option and sign in using their school email and password. As a parent/carer, you can set-up your own SMHW account using a unique parent code - this will be sent to you in the first week of term.
It is highly recommended that both students and parents/carers download the SMHW app provided by 'Satchel:One' from their app store and enable notifications, as this will automatically inform you of each and every task that has been set for your child and the respective deadline for completion.
We believe that the regular completion of a sensible amount of targeted homework serves not only to give students a greater level of exposure to important course content, but also to improve their independence and the responsibility they take for their own learning. We trust you will support the school in this important element of your child’s education by reminding your child of their tasks and expectations, and by helping to ensure that deadlines are met.
