Y11 Controlled Assessments

Harvey Waller - Friday, January 29, 2021

Year 11 students will commence their first controlled assessment window in the week beginning Monday 8th February.

In this first week there will be assessments in English Literature (Unseen Poetry), Mathematics and Science (Chemistry). In the two weeks after the half-term break, there will be assessments in the remaining subjects.

To ensure students are well prepared to complete these assessments, all year 11 students should attend a live lesson on Monday 8th February at 11.15am. Students will be invited to this Google classroom (called Controlled Assessment Training) via their school email addresses. They should use the classroom code provided in the email to join.

In this lesson, students will be given information about how to complete the assessments and how to submit them for marking. It is therefore important that all students attend the live lessons.

If your child is entitled to exam access arrangements you will be contacted with details separately about how your child will be supported during these controlled assessments.

All students will receive a Maths assessment answer paper through the post in the week beginning Monday 1st February. Further details of how to complete this paper will be explained in the live lesson on Monday 8th February.

During this assessment period students will continue to follow their timetable for lessons 1, 2 and 5. All assessments will begin at 11.15am and no other work will be set during this time. The timing of assessments varies with each subject and these can be found in the attached timetable. If your child does not have an assessment at this time they should use lessons 3 and 4 to revise for upcoming assessments.

Please encourage your child to work hard and engage with this assessment period, completing all assessments independently by the specified time. This process will provide us with evidence to help inform our judgements and target intervention as we go through the year.

To help with students’ revision we have provided the subject checklists for the subjects assessed in the first week. All other subject checklists will be posted in the relevant subjects’ Google Classrooms.

If you have any further questions about this process, please contact Mrs Jenkins:

Take care and stay safe.
Yours sincerely,

Darren Warner-Swann
Head of School
