What should I do if I set homework by accident?

Once a homework has been set it can't be deleted. If you set a Compulsory homework by accident then we recommend you advise students to leave it until the time when you were planning to set the homework, and set that one to Optional Only.

For example, if you accidentally set homework during a half-term holiday, then switch the homework in the week following half term to Optional Only. That way the accidentally set Compulsory homework will be completed (a week late), and the Optional Only homework will be there for students if they want to do extra work.
