keep track of your child’s homework. Show My Homework will allow you to see the

communicate with parents and give you greater visibility into the homework we set.

be sent out after your child has been admitted to school but in the meantime, you are still able to view all

We hope that this service will provide parents with a deeper insight into the homework your child receives. More
importantly, we hope that it will improve your child’s organisation, time-management and help them to keep on
top of their workload.
To keep up to date on the move please download the Show My Homework app once you receive your login details,
you will then be sent push notifications to let you know what homework is due. You will also be notified of grades,

There is a direct link between a pupil’s vocabulary size and their academic achievement. Narrow vocabularies
affect pupils’ grades. Helping students to improve and widen their academic vocabularies is essential if
standards and outcomes are to improve.
Bedrock Vocabulary is an online programme which teaches vocabulary explicitly, whilst encouraging reading.
It teaches students the academic vocabulary they need to succeed in school.
Bedrock teaches students new vocabulary using research based strategies. We offer a multi-modal programme
to frequently immerse your students in aspirational, academic vocabulary. The type of language we teach is
critical to academic success and is known as tier 2 vocabulary.
Tassomai is an intelligent learning program that helps students achieve
outstanding results. Tassomai uses multiple choice style micro-quizzes to
build knowledge, boost confidence and reduce exam stress.
Distilling the Information – Each syllabus has been broken down into quizzable micro-facts, covering
everything students need to know for their exams
Adapting to the User – Tassomai’s unique algorithm adapts itself to the user, targeting their weaknesses, and
tailors the quizzes accordingly
Learn through daily quizzing – Students only need to do a few minutes each day to keep up with their targets
and complete the course in time for their exams
Practice makes Permanent – Targeted repetition, done little and often, is the most effective and efficient
way to implant knowledge and prepare for exams
The Performance Wheel – A student’s daily goal is simply to keep their wheel green or blue —
if they do this they will have covered the whole course in time for their exams. If a student falls
behind their target then their wheel will turn orange or red. Their wheel updates automatically,
so they can see their progress as it happens.

or other learning difficulties.
