Year 7 Assessment Information Meeting for Parents


7 November 2018

Dear Parent/Carer

Year 7 Assessment Information Meeting for Parents

The Year 7 Assessment Information meeting for parents will take place on Tuesday 20 November 2018 at 6:00pm in the Drama Hall.

As you may be aware, KS3 National Curriculum Levels have been removed. In addition, for current year 7 students, KS4 GCSE grades A*-G will be replaced by a new grading system 1-9, with 9 being the highest. Given these changes, the Academy will be using a new assessment model to monitor your son/daughter's progress through Lower Secondary and Upper Secondary. In year 7 we will send three Attainment and Progress Reports to parents and the first of these, specific to your son/daughter, will be issued on Friday 30 November 2018.

This evening does not provide specific information about the progress of your son/daughter - the Parents' Evenings for Year 7 are on Tuesday 4 and Wednesday 5 December 2018, where you will have the opportunity to discuss your son/daughter's progress with their subject teachers.

Please return the reply slip below to your son/daughter's House Tutor by Friday 16 November 2018, in order for us to make the necessary seating arrangements.

Please sign your son/daughter's planner on page 30, the Academy/Home Communications page, to indicate that you have received this letter.

Yours faithfully

Mrs J M Rogers
Assistant Principal
