Over recent years, we have used a digital homework tool called Show My Homework by Team Satchel to help our students and parents manage homework tasks.
We feel that there are numerous benefits to using Show My Homework. It removes unnecessary admin time from lessons which can be better used for teaching and learning. It also means that more detailed instructions and digital copies of any resources needed can be uploaded by teachers to help ensure that students can complete their homework successfully.
Finally, the ‘to do list’ feature can help students manage their homework time more successfully.
Please don’t worry, we also appreciate that homework can be the cause of stress and tension and a new system like Show My Homework can take a little getting used to. Pleasebe assured that in the first few weeks, teachers will deal sympathetically with homework issues and your child’s form tutor and year team will be on hand to help them get the hang of Show My Homework very quickly.
If you require any help using and
managing Show My Homework, please visit the online help centre. This can be
found by visiting www.teamsatchel.com
and clicking the ‘support’ link at the top of the page. Here you will find
dedicated help articles for both parents and students. Alternatively please

Caterlink use a cashless payment system - ScoPay
Year 7's in September, before photo ID cards are printed, students will be issued with a 4-digit pin number which they can use to top up their account using one of the payment machines in reception. Students will be asked for their pin number when ordering food. After October half-term students photo ID cards will be issued for all Year 7's and these will replace the pin numbers.
Parents and carers can top up student accounts securely online with a debit or credit card using ‘ScoPay’.
Making a payment via Scopay is straightforward and holds an electronic record of your deposits for you to view along with details of your child’s meal purchase history. You will also be able to pay for school trips, tickets, shuttle bus tickets etc using the same ScoPay account.
For Year 7's starting in September, details of how to register to use ‘Scopay’ will be sent home in the first half-term. In the meantime students will need to bring money in and top up using one of the payment machines in reception.
