Letter for parents - Year 7 and 8 Homework

Dear Parent/ Carer

Firstly I would like to thank you for your support to raise the achievement and progress of your child by instilling hard work through homework. The student planner is an essential tool which is used each day to support learning whilst in school.

Your child has received a new planner in line with changes to how homework for year 7 and year 8 students is set .The previous homework diaries included subjects in the left hand column stating when the homework was due to be handed in. The new diaries still have this column but with one change; this is now the day the homework is set by the class teacher.

Another change is the way your child’s homework will be handed in. The date that the homework is to be handed in will be set by teacher and this is to be logged by your child in their planner, alongside the homework task. Students will now be expected to hand in their homework directly to their teacher on the day specified. It will remain the responsibility of your child to bring the homework in on time.

Your child will have received a sticker which can be found on the front of their new planner. This outlines how students can log into Show My Homework using their Academy email address and password. Show My Homework is a great tool to support students when used in conjunction with their planner.  Show My Homework can also be accessed by parents to monitor what homework is set for your child.

If you would like any additional support with any of the changes outlined above, please contact your child’s learning tutor or a member of their year team.

Yours faithfully

Mrs G Arnold

Assistant Headteacher
