Supporting Students’ Independent Learning through Satchel One (Formerly Show My Homework)

Purposeful home learning is proven to have a positive effect on the learning of pupils helping develop essential independent study skills. However, in the busy day it is often difficult for students to have an accurate record of their home learning and parents can often find it challenging to be fully informed about the type and quantity of home learning that has been set. Egglescliffe School has linked up with Satchel One (Formerly Show My Homework) to improve the home learning experience of our students from Y7 to Y13. All home learning will be set via the website and both students and parents can view this via their own personalised page.

Satchel One (Formerly Show My Homework) will enable teachers to set detailed home learning via the website and provide support, web links and video clips to make the home learning engaging, accessible and purposeful.

All students have been given a log-on to their own account so they can see all home learning that has been set, accessing their own personalised home learning calendar to help them manage their workload and become successful independent learners. Parents are also provided with a log-on so they can see the home learning that has been set for their child. These log-ons will be sent home in the first week for new Year 7 pupils. All other pupils will keep their previous log on.

An app is also available for both iOS and Android users to allow ease of access to the service for both parents and students.

Resources to support you in accessing the website/app are available here.
