We recognise the value homework has and the positive effect it has upon learning. Homework should build on prior learning, consolidate what has been learnt in lessons and deepen students knowledge and understanding.
The process of managing homework gives students good habits that they need to succeed in life- self-discipline, organisation, perseverance, resilience and the ability to think independently.
We are always looking for ways to make homework more effective and we use Show My Homework to set homework. Show My Homework enables students (and parents) to see exactly what homework is set. Students (and parents) at The Portsmouth Academy can download a Show My Homework app for their mobile phones that can send reminders when homework is due. For more info about the apps see IOS App, Android App or other mobile devices.
All students will receive homework set through Show My Homework only.
NOTE: Students do not have a login for Show My Homework. They need to select The Portsmouth Academy and use their @tsatstudent.org.uk school email account to login.
We value the support that families give to their children in completing homework. All parents and carers can access the website via any device that is internet enabled to see what homework has been set for their child and the deadlines for each piece.
We try to provide parental logins at each parents evening. If you require a login for Show My Homework, or your child needs a reminder of their email address, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or ask your child to visit reception.
