Show My Homework

We are very excited to be rolling out ‘Show My Homework’ across the whole School.  This is a fantastic tool used by 1 in 3 schools across the country to provide an online homework calendar accessible to Parents and Students.  We are rolling the system out this term and you will receive a login PIN code soon. 

You already have full access to the homework calendar with no login required by using the button on our website or viewing the calendar via this link. (https://ribstonhall.showmyhomework.co.uk/school/homeworks/calendar)

Here are some resources to help you get started (some refer to the App which you can use once you have your PIN code)

Ribston Hall MyEd ‘App’

We are very pleased to announce that we are introducing a fantastic new way to communicate and share information with parents. At Ribston we want you to feel as much a part of your child’s education as possible. With the increased use of smart phone technology we want to make best use of it.

MyEd is the free parent app that gives you a multitude of communication and information features to stay in touch with what is going on at school. The app gives you direct access to your daughter/son’s attendance, timetable, absence records, achievements, behaviour and much, much more. You will also see that we update and change the information in the app as the school year moves along. Click here (http://www.myedschoolapp.com/) to see a short video about the app.

We are able to send you messages directly to the MyEd app relating to important information about your child's education and to remind you of events that are taking place at school.  You are also able to notify us if you daughter/son will be absent from school using the app.  You will receive a notification if we send you a message and there is no charge for the messages you send to us.

The MyEd app is available for both Apple iOS and Android devices and can be found using the links below:

Step 1 - Go to your App Store

Step 2 - Search for My Ed

Once you have installed and opened MyEd, search for Ribston Hall High School and follow the simple instructions to identify yourself.

We hope you enjoy using the app and find it a useful source of information.
