Some information for you

As a parent/carer, the ‘Show My Homework’ software will allow you to:

  • have 24 hours a day, 7 days per week access to your child’s homework;
  • view the quantity and quality of any homework issued;
  • receive notifications to remind you when your child’s homework is due;
  • download a FREE app to use from your iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, and Android devices.

To allow access to your child’s individual homework calendar you are required to visit the ‘Show My Homework’ website by clicking the SMHW logo above and use the personalised login code supplied in the instruction sheet provided.  You are asked to name the school, so type in Kilwinning Academy, then create your own password.

When you have set up your own account, you will be able to access your child’s homework calendar by simply logging into the website or access via the app on your device.  If you or your child have any questions about the service, please don’t hesitate to get in touch via the school email address (shown below) marking your email clearly with the term ‘SHOW MY HOMEWORK’ so that it will be passed to Mrs McNeil or Ms Wood for response.

Logging in with the PIN Number supplied

Please ensure that you have your child’s ‘Instruction Sheet’ included with your letter is at hand.  The ‘Instruction Sheet’ will contain your personal PIN to login for the first time. 


To login with the PIN number supplied, follow the steps below:

  1. Visit this page: 
  2. Enter your PIN (supplied in the Instruction Sheet sent by us) in the empty field
  3. Search for your child’s school (by name or postcode)
  4. Click Submit
  5. On the next screen add or edit your email address
  6. Choose and confirm a password
  7. Press Update details

You are now set up and will be able to access your account using your email and password combination or by using the Show My Homework app downloaded onto your device.  Please keep your PIN safe, as you can use this to reset your password in the future.

Next Steps

Logging into your Show My Homework account will let you view the homework set for your child or children, as well as the last time they were active on the Show My Homework programme. You will also be able to access their PIN numbers just in case they cannot login themselves.

We realise that not all parents/carers or young people will have access to the internet or apps on their phone, therefore, the school will continue to issue paper copies of homework to those who require this service.  Homework will still be reported on as part of our tracking reports system.

Thank you once again for your support.
