Show My Homework

We are pleased to announce that we are now running Show My Homework at Edenham. This system allows all teachers to upload homework onto the online platform so that students and parents can access it through the online calendar. There is a link to this on the tabs to the left. Students and parents can also login to look at specific homework set for that child. Parents of more than one student at Edenham can combine accounts together for ease of use.

The system allows us to send home all letters, bulletins and important information to registered users. Students can see a countdown to all the homework set for their classes and parents can see whether or not it was submitted and potentially what grade was achieved for the work.

Show My Homework is now fully functioning at Edenham, please ensure you are logging in to check homework that has been set.

Students have now all received their login details for themselves and for their parent/carers. If you did not receive your information or are having trouble logging in please contact your son/daughters current Head of Progress Team who will be happy to assist you.  For Head of Progress contact emails, please click on contact us, teacher emails.
