As you are aware the summer AS, A2 and GCSE examination series has ben cancelled. As a result there will be no mock examinations this year. In their place will be a series of In School Assessments between now and February half term. Please find attached an initial programme for these in school assessments. Class teachers will give more specific details nearer the time.
Pupils need not be overly concerned by these In Class Assessments. Teachers will be preparing the class for these tests, just as they would normally for class tests during this time of year. they will form part of the normal teaching, learning and assessment cycle. This means that pupils in Year 11 will need to be in as many lessons as possible, to give their work their full focus and work closely with their teachers to ensure they are up to date with all of their work. I'm sure Year 11 will work to achieve this.
After February half term the WJEC will set specific activities throughout the remainder of the school year. We are awaiting further details of these Externally Assessed Units.
I understand you may feel some uncertainty about the coming months. If you do have any questions please do not hesitate to contact myself, your head of learning or specific Heads of Faculty. We will do our best to answer your questions, keep you informed and of course support your child.
