Thank you to all parents and carers for the tremendous support they have shown for our year 11 students so far this term. The interventions are now all up and running and the students’ attendance is excellent. Of course, attendance at such sessions is only the start; students should be revising at home, consolidating the knowledge and practising the skills they have been taught. The first round of pre public examinations are just a matter of weeks away and it is the results of these exams that students will share with colleges and post 16 providers in their applications over the next few months.
I was delighted to see so many families at our year 11 Parent Partnership event on Thursday where teachers in our key subjects explained how you can help your child with their revision and organisation. Please can I thank all the staff for their presentations and for generously giving up their time for our students. It goes without saying that students’ revision should now have started and there is simply no situation where a student should say they have ‘no work to do’. The teachers have shared with them resources, revision materials and links to online learning platforms. This week, we have invested in a brand new revision resource called GCSE pod which provides short informative video clips and other revision resources, tailored to the specific examination boards in every subject so that students can access revision resources at any time through a simple app on their mobile devices. We will be launching this with the students in assemblies next week and will write to you soon with full details of this exciting new resource.
