Dear Parents and Carers,
In order to further support your child’s academic progress, they will shortly be undertaking PPEs (pre-public exams) in all subjects. All subjects will be examined in formal conditions in the sports hall. With the demise of coursework at G.C.S.E. we recognise that it is never too early to encourage and develop good examination skills and techniques. These examinations will help us to assess what has been learnt by your child throughout the year and the information gained will help us to review their sets for next year: they are therefore very important for your child.
Year 10 examinations will take place from 13th-28th June in the School Sports Hall and Main Hall. Students have been briefed regarding these examinations in an assembly, where they were also given advice regarding the importance of revision and developing good examination habits.
How can you help?
Please support your child by ensuring they know when their examinations are taking place and ensuring that they continue to attend punctually every morning as normal. Please also discuss their examinations with them and help them to fill in their bespoke revision timetable based upon their own curricular targets and areas for development. You can also help them by providing a place of quiet, uninterrupted study as per the times set out and agreed with you on their revision timetable. Finally, once they have made notes and tried to learn them, you can ask them questions to check their understanding of each topic for their examinations.
You can also help by ensuring that your child has all of the required equipment for their examinations: three black pens; a pencil and rubber; ruler and highlighter; a scientific calculator and when revising, access to the internet for generic revision sites, including Century Tech, BBC Bitesize and G.C.S.E. Pod.
If you need any further advice or guidance regarding these examinations, please contact me.
Mr S Edwards
Exam Timetable: Year 10 June, 2022
When they are not in an examination in the Sports Hall, your child will be in their normal, timetabled lesson. They must therefore still bring their normal equipment and school books with them to school each day.
