Year 10 Parents’ Evening Wednesday 7 December 2016
We are pleased to invite you to the Year 10 Parents’ evening on Wednesday 7 December. Students have been given a letter with details earlier this week. To request appointment times, please visit www.surveymonkey.com/r/Q5KZQW3 or return the form attached to the letter to your child’s tutor by Friday 25 November.

Maths: Homework and Revision App
We now have access to a fantastic revision app for use by all students to help with their maths homework and revision. Students have been given login details and passwords by their class teacher. You can get the free app on the following link http://mathsapp.pixl.org.uk/PMA.swf or by searching for ‘PiXL maths app’. The app can be downloaded onto any smartphone, tablet or PC.

Checking for Literacy
In order to build on last year’s work on raising whole school awareness of literacy, we have created a Checking for Literacy card for students. The Card is aimed primarily at Years 8 and 9 but may be useful for all year groups. Students in Years 8 and 9 will be given a card to stick into their English books: their English teacher will help them use it effectively and encourage them to use it to check written work in all subjects. We would also encourage students and parents to use the card to help check written work completed at home and we will make a copy available on the website next week.
