Prizes needed for Summer Fayre!

We are looking for help from our parents with regards to possible prize donations for the school fete raffle on 15th July. Does anyone have any potential contacts we could use either through their workplace or personal? Any help/advice is very much appreciated as all funds raised will be put towards the refurbishment of the school changing rooms.

Important KS3 Exams Information

Dear Parents

KS3 students are entering their ‘end of year exam period’.  Students will be sitting exams in their core subjects (English, maths and science) in formal exam conditions.  They have all received an individual timetable for these tests.

Tests will also be taken for the following subjects: history, geography, RS and languages, in the classroom during normal timetabled lessons.  Students will be having assessments at the end of their current unit (so nearer the end of the summer term) in the practical and performance subjects.

Students are being issued with a blank timetable to write in when they are having their class based tests, this is because different groups will be sitting these subject tests at different times.

These exams are really nothing to be worried about.  They give the students good experience and practice of taking tests and get them into the habit and routine, so when they sit more formal exams they are able to take them in their stride.  They also provide really useful assessment information for teachers.

Students have been set revision tasks centrally for the core subjects: these can be found on Show My Homework.  Other subjects will continue to set revision tasks.

Best wishes

Jayne O’Grady

Deputy Headteacher
