At Shuttleworth College, we know that high-quality homework can enhance the progress that students make.
Research shows that setting pupils high-quality homework has an average impact of five months’ additional progress in a year in secondary schools. Homework is used to extend, consolidate, and enrich learning, whilst allowing students to investigate new things.
Teachers set homework on the Shuttleworth College app, a guide for parents is available here.
We will send a text home if homework is not completed/handed in to ask for parent/carer support. If homework is still not completed, it will be logged and after 3 occasions a student will receive an after-school detention.
Please let us know if your contact details have changed to ensure that you receive homework summaries by emailing email@example.com , or you can amend them yourself within the app.
For help with any technical problems (e.g. resetting passwords), please email ICT support via firstname.lastname@example.org
If you have any queries about homework at Shuttleworth College, please email Ms. Lightfoot:
Shuttleworth also provides students with a wealth of resources to help them with their homework. Students are welcome to use our library, well stocked with books and computers before school, during break, lunch, & after-school to complete homework. If they need additional help or support logging in or printing off resources, they can speak to their class teacher or Head of Year.
