Homework is a very important part of life at Droylsden Academy. It prepares students for the next lesson, it develops learning and it ensures that students work hard out of lessons as well as in lessons.

When students arrive at Droylsden Academy, they will be given a very important student planner. Students must carry this between lessons and line up with it in their hands before each lesson. Nothing should be written on the covers or inside the planner other than what their teacher tells them to write.

The planner is used to record all homework, achievements, information about learning and attendance.
If a planner is lost it must be replaced immediately and a charge of £3 will be made to cover costs.
Parent/Careers are asked to review and sign the planner every week.

Show My Homework

Droylsden Academy uses Show My Homework, an online tool to help you keep track of your child's homework. Show My Homework will allow you to see the details of the tasks your child has been set, as well as its submission status and grades.

With this app you can access 24/7 any homework that has been set by a class teacher. This can be translated into over 50 languages and you can even receive automated notifications before homework is due. The app is available to be downloaded on iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Android devices.

In September you will receive a letter in the post with your login detail for both Parent view and Student View.
