Before Christmas the Key Stage 3 Parents’ Information Evening needed to be postponed due to the weather and we are pleased to inform you that this will now take place on Tuesday 30 January at 7 pm in Constance Green Hall.
The information evening is offered to support you and your child as we are conscious that with the advent of the reformed GCSEs, and the introduction of the new 1-9 grading, the curriculum has become more complicated for students and parents.
We will use this evening to explain how we have adapted our assessment and reporting structures to inform you of progress through Years 7-9 as well as the difference between grading in the reformed GCSE courses that your son or daughter will be taking.
The English and Maths departments will be present to outline the ways they have developed their Key Stage 3 programmes of study to support these developments and members of the pastoral team will explain the tutorial programme that supports students through their courses.
Presentations will start at 7pm following which there will be an opportunity to discuss any questions with the staff present.
