Year 10 Pre-Public Examinations
17 May 2021
Your child has today been given a copy of the examination timetable for internal exams taking place during June- along with a copy of expectations for the exams. I would be grateful if you could spend a short while going through these with your child. The exam timetable is linked underneath this letter.
These exams are set to help assess how much progress your child has made in this academic year and provide valuable experience for how the actual GCSE exams are sat in Year 11.
We are making every effort to continually raise the standards attained and raising the profile of exams in the school is further evidence of this. To this end, it may be necessary to remove pupils from exam rooms where they are causing distraction and relocate them elsewhere. If this is not successful, then it may be necessary to call parents and ask them to collect their child immediately.
I am confident that pupils will respect the rights of other pupils and that the drastic measures outlined will not be necessary. It is vital that we continue to make progress both individually and as a school and hopefully you will be able to reinforce this with your son/daughter.
Should you wish to discuss anything that is contained in this letter or you would like to speak to me regarding any aspect of the examinations, please contact me at your earliest convenience.
