Our School App Stay connected on the go...
At Hornsey School for Girls we are always looking for ways to extend our students’ learning. Part of our improvement programme involves the use of SAM Learning, a unique online service that covers all subjects. SAM has a proven track record; studies have shown that using the service leads to better exam results.
Students are able to access the service at anytime and anywhere. It is available to them in school, but also at home, in the library and community centre. All they need to do is visit the website and enter their unique login details.
Date of birth followed by two initials: first name then last name.
Initially same as the User ID, Learners are encouraged to change this to something difficult to guess.
How to get involved
All students will be taught how to use the service and you might wish to ask them how it works. The service enables homework to be set and marked which means that you can easily monitor the progress of your child.
We hope that your child is able to take full advantage of SAM Learning and thank you in advance for supporting the initiative.
Homework with SAM Learning
Homework can also be set using SAM Learning. All students are able to access assignments via their personal homepage and view homework tasks in the ‘My Homework’ tab. This tab shows when the homework is due to be completed, if it is has not been completed and also if it is overdue.
All completed homework is either computer or self marked, depending on the type of work set. There is instant feedback, and scores can be viewed by students, parents or teachers in the ‘My Progress’ tab for the Last Homework Set (LHS). All staff receive a report on the homework that is completed by each student. Students are also able to re-visit homework activities if they wish to improve on their last score. Another advantage is that students are able to share their homework successes with their parents.
