Homework at DPHS


Homework makes an important contribution to students’ progress at school: it extends the challenge open to students and it is an essential part of the way in which school prepares students for tests, examinations and lifelong learning.

How do I know what homework my child has?

All homework should be written in your child’s “Brain,” (school diary). It should be written on the day it was set and include the subject, description and due date. You can also see an overview of the homework that is set at Key Stage 3 here.

Some homework maybe set online through Doddle or some may be set on paper. Regardless, all homework should be written in the “Brain” and this should be signed weekly at home and in school.

If your son/ daughter has fogotten their password for Doddle they should go to the school office or they can reset it via the Doddle site and access it from their school email address. School email is accessed via the “Students” area of the school website. The email address is their school username followed by “@debdenparkhighschool.org”. For example, “14jsmith@debdenparkhighschool.org”.
