All Year 7 and Year 8 students are required to sit a Drama assessment to inform school of their progress in Drama. All students who did not complete this on 20 January will need to sit the assessment on Monday 25 January. Students should check their To Do tasks on ClassCharts for details.
We would appreciate parents’ support to ensure your child takes the assessment if they did not complete itf on the earlier date.
The assessment must be done independently and without class booklets.
The assessment has to be done at a set time – either 10 am to 10.45 am or 4 pm to 4.45 pm on Monday 25 January.
Students will take part via a link to Microsoft Forms which they will find on ClassCharts. The Microsoft Forms link will only be ‘live’ at the above times.
Before the day of the assessment, please ensure your child can access the following links:
Following on from feedback from students, parents and staff, Years 7 to 9 are moving to a one-week remote learning timetable with less lessons and spare time for catching up built into the timetable.
Students should follow the timetable each day in the order they prefer and use any Catch Up time to finish off work they have not yet completed. If they are up to date, they can use the Catch Up time to read, exercise or complete an independent project.
Students should submit their work as they complete it to allow for continued feedback from teachers during the week. All work should be submitted by Friday each week.
You will find the new timetables for Years 7 to 9 on the Student Links and Remote Learning pages of our website (access from the Home page). There are also useful guides to using ClassCharts and Office on these pages too.
Vocational exams for Year 10, 11 and Post 16 will go ahead as planned in January. Revision sessions will go ahead at home via Microsoft Teams. Staff will send details of sessions to students on Monday 4 January.
