Year 11 Mock Examinations and Catch Up Session (Revision) Timetable
Dear Parent / Carer
Year 11 Mock Examination, Controlled Assessment and Catch up sessions - Monday 2nd December - Tuesday 17th December
Between Monday 2nd December and Tuesday 17th December all Year 11 students will be on study leave and should only come into school when they have examinations, Controlled Assessment or curriculum catch-up sessions.
Whilst the examinations are on, all year 11 lessons are suspended and students will follow the attached timetable.
These examinations, controlled assessment and curriculum catch-up sessions are important because:
The results from these mock examinations will determine the predicted grades that teachers report for students.
They provide an opportunity for students to practice sitting an examination in the subjects they study.
They provide an opportunity for students to follow an examination timetable and arriving at the right place at the right time with all necessary equipment.
Students can complete their controlled assessment with the support of their teachers.
The examinations timetable is below. Please read through it with your child to make sure they know when they need to be in and what they need for that session.
Outside of the actual Examination and Controlled Assessment times, selected students will be required to attend revision and curriculum catch-up sessions (as indicated on the timetable below). If this is not the case, then they will be seen off-site after the examination, for home study/revision.
Please help your son/daughter to do their best in the examinations by ensuring that:
Students arrive on time to all exams in full school uniform.
students line up sensibly in the playground before the start of each exam.
As they enter the exam, students are silent, they put their bags and coats at the front of the hall and then take their seats as quickly as possible without talking.
Students should have the correct equipment for each examination - at least 2 pens (should be black ink), pencils, rubber, ruler and any subject specific equipment necessary. this equipment should be kept in a plastic, see-through bag.
Attendance should be 100%, and students should arrive at least 10 minutes before the start of each exam.
Mobile phones must be turned off, and either left at home or in their bags. Phones cannot be in students' pockets during exams.
Students know which exams and coursework sessions they should be attending. Please display a copy of the exam timetable at home and ensure that your son/daughter has their own copy. You can download a copy by clicking here.
I hope all students achieve well in these exams. Good results should show students what they are capable of achieving, poor results should encourage students to take responsibility for their own progress and address where they went wrong.
Please take the time to go through the attached timetable and code of conduct below with your son/daughter so that they can maximise their potential and get it right in these exams. Students' conduct in these exams must be perfect. Failure to behave in any manner other than that may result in non-entry for final examinations.
