As of August 2022, Breadalbane Academy Secondary will no longer use Satchel 1 for homework in S1-3. We will now use Microsoft Teams to support pupils in ALL year groups with the completion of homework, and to encourage parental engagement with pupil learning at home. Class teachers will record all homework via Teams, which will populate pupils’ Teams calendar. This will give details of the task including date set, date due and method of submission. Pupils are expected to check their Teams calendar daily to ensure that they are up to date with homework set. Homework notifications will automatically be sent to pupils’ GLOW email account from Teams when a new assignment is set.
Teachers will monitor submission and non-submission of homework. Non-completion of homework will result in a series of actions taking place including deadline extension, learning conversations, parental contact, and reflection on tracking reports. Pupils in S1 – S3 follow a broad general education, so to support parents / carers with pupils’ homework deadlines, a schedule of homework will be shared at the start of each term indicating which departments are issuing homework each week. Senior pupils in S4 – S6 follow a diverse range of subjects, so the nature and quantity of homework will vary across subject areas and throughout the year.
