“Research indicates that family involvement in schools increases student achievement”
(Henderson & Berla, 1994; Ballen & Moles, 1994; Epstein, 1995).
It is important to work in partnership to 'get it right for every child'.
• The majority of courses will be assessed through exams at the end of the Year (mostly Year 11)
• Exam dates are set externally, so can not be re-arranged. Please check dates before booking any medical appointments and it is very important to note that any holidays in term time will not be authorised.
• Many subjects have moved from coursework to controlled assessments where students have to complete work over a set time within controlled conditions. Again, please try to avoid absence during these times
• SPaG – Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar now count towards student’s grades in some subject areas e.g. English, Geography and History so please encourage students to use the correct punctuation and strategies for spelling.
Controlled assessment is the internal assessment component of the GCSE courses that is completed in school.
It is completed in the classroom so it is supervised, so students are not able to work on it at home.
It replaces coursework.
• A lot of students throw marks away carelessly in exams by poor exam technique
• Read the question and know the subject relevance. Answer in detail.
Some subjects have as much as 60% of their course as controlled assessment, others have only 25%, so attendance is important.
Catching up can prove difficult as it must be done in school, some extended after school sessions are necessary to facilitate this.
Punctuality is also important as it can mean missing
