Advice and Guidance
Homework is set by staff using the Show My Homework (SMHW) website. This can be accessed from home by students logging onto The Causeway School website and then clicking on the ‘Show My Homework’ icon.
Or you can click here.
Parents can also log on to Show My Homework and see what homework their child has been set. Please contact the school for a login if you do not have one.
Parents can access a homework curriculum plan via the Our Curriculum pages. This should be used as a guide as individual staff may set homework specific to the learning needs of a class.
At The Causeway School homework is considered to be a very important part of the learning experience. Homework helps students to improve their understanding and develop independent learning skills. Homework also provides parents with an opportunity to take part in their child’s education.
Students will receive regular homework from their subject teachers and should use their planner to record homework as soon as it is set. With Show My Homework, homework can be written and handed in in class or sent via the application straight to the teacher. You will see what each teacher has asked for when you login to Show My Homework and go to the subject page. Students should continue to use their planners to remind themselves of homework.
Try to complete homework punctually; you may receive an invitation to attend homework catch up clubs if you do not complete your homework on time.
Complete your homework where you are not going to be disturbed. Some students work well with quiet background music, but TV and mobile phones should be switched off. If you have any problems with your homework, please see your subject teacher as soon as possible. If you require further help then see the relevant Subject Leader or your Head of Year. If no homework is set you could use the internet to do some independent study of your own. Please ask your teachers for useful internet sites. You could also read a book or a newspaper.
Children get better results when parents get involved in their schoolwork and helps them to prepare for tests and exams. Parents don’t have to understand the work; they just need to take an interest and value achievement.
