Homework

At Arnold Hill, homework is an important part of the curriculum. We want to support all students to complete homework and also ensure that parents and carers are informed about the content and when homework is set.

At Arnold Hill Academy we use 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 their submission status and grades.

We hope that this service will provide you with a deeper insight into the homework your child receives. More importantly, we hope that it will improve your child’s organisation, time-management, and help them to keep on top of their workload.
