When are parent emails sent?

Parent emails are sent at 4:30pm three days before a Compulsory homework is due in. They are not sent when a homework is Optional Only.

If the length of time between homework hand-out and homework hand-in is either two or three days, then the emails will be sent the day after the homework is set. If the due date is the day after the homework has been set, then the email will be sent the same day.

Example 1: If a school has homework hand-out on Monday and hand-in the following Monday, then the parent emails will be sent at 4:30pm on Friday.

Example 2: If a school has homework hand-out on Monday and hand-in on Wednesday, then the parent emails will be sent at 4:30pm on Tuesday.

 

Parents will not receive Sparx emails when homework has been switched off (for example in school holidays).
