Homework matters!

We ask all parents and carers to work with school to ensure that their children complete their homework on time and to the best of their ability.

Homework tasks are set for pupils to:

  • Consolidate and reinforce skills and understanding
  • Develop skills of organisation and self-discipline
  • Prepare them for the demands of university or work life
  • Extend school learning

To allow greater communication between the school and parents/carers regarding homework, The King's School uses an online homework package called 'Show My Homework'. It includes a simple online calendar showing homework information, deadlines and attachments for students.

The benefits of Show My Homework for students include:

  • See all homework at the click of a button
  • A personalised experience to help stay organised
  • Automatic due date reminders
  • More learning time during lessons
  • App available from App Store and Google Play Store.

Parents/Carers are also assigned a username and password so they can ensure their child completes all homework to set deadlines and to the appropriate standard.

The benefits of Show My Homework for parents include:

  • See exactly how much homework has been set
  • It's much easier to take part in home learning
  • Translation into 50+ languages.

Google Classroom

Google Classroom is an online learning platform that gives teachers and students the capability to share resources and work. Teachers can set work for students to submit allowing teachers to monitor progress and provide feedback for tasks where this is relevant. All home learning tasks will continue to be set and explained on SMHW, but teachers of some subjects may then direct students onto Google Classroom.

All students have a Google Classroom account. In Year 8-Year 11, student login details for Google Classroom are fullname@theks.co.uk. For example, joebloggs@theks.co.uk. For students in Year 7, a number 1 is included in the username; for example, fullname1@theks.co.uk.

Students have been given their passwords. These should be written on page 26 of each students' planner.
