What is Show My Homework?

Show My Homework is the easiest way for students and parents/carers to find out about homework instructions and deadlines set by teachers at Castle View enterprise Academy. If your child has forgotten their password, please see Miss Brown in the main office.

Show My Homework allows Senior Leaders within school to track and monitor your child’s progress, and ensure complete transparency, making it easy to spot when a child may be struggling.  Not only that, but it ensures that the quality of homework your child receives is always up to scratch. Now that’s pretty important when you consider that homework can add an additional 5 months’ progress to a child’s learning! Knowing when your child has homework and encouraging them to complete it can help them to develop and improve academically, providing them with better chances in life post education. 

All teachers create and publish their homework online, on the school’s calendar. Parents and students can manage submission of homework and view grades. You can review submission times, see grades and communicate with teachers around specific assignments. We’ve even got forgotten passwords covered - you can check for any homework set on the public homework calendar without ever having to log in! Gone are the days of lost worksheets, illegible and missing instructions:  All homework details are accessible 24/7.  Monitor from a distance: Stay in the loop without being intrusive.  Enjoy peace of mind and never have to deal with late-night homework battles again!
