Normally we would be welcoming Year 10 parents into the school premises to inform them about the demands and expectations on Year 10 students as they embark upon their GCSEs. We are unable to hold this event so we have prepared a PowerPoint to share some of the key messages.
This presentation aims to help parents to understand some of the changes to Key Stage 4 and how they can best help their child achieve their potential. The PowerPoint has some generic points about new grading systems, our reporting and general advice about how to support the students starting Key Stage 4. The PowerPoint then goes on to some more specific advice about Key Stage 4 English and Maths.
