Assessment 2 for Years 7 & 12

and Assessment 3 for Years 11 & 13


Dear Parents,

Your daughter or son’s Assessment Sheet will be available on SIMS Learning gateway from Saturday, February 10th.

We have been encountering some IT related issues with overnight rollovers and will be monitoring the situation over the weekend and on Monday morning to ensure your child’s Assessments are visible to you.

This is the second or the third of the four Assessments, which we will send home this year.

We hope that both you and they will find cause for celebration and that the grades they have received will inform their work for the coming term and beyond.

In the coming school term and year we will be focusing on student attendance. Every student should be aiming for 100%, except in the most exceptional circumstances. Less than 98% attendance is a serious cause for concern and disrupts students’ learning.

We will also be focusing much more closely on the completion of all Homework by all students to their best personal standard as we believe this is a vital key to student learning and progress.

Please would you check that your son or daughter has all necessary equipment for school. A list of equipment also appears in the Parents’ Handbook as well as the Student Planner.

We look forward to seeing students back in school on Tuesday, February 20th 2018.

If you have any query or concern around your daughter or son’s Assessments please contact their Academy Director during the first week after the half-term holiday.

May I also take this opportunity to wish all students and their families an enjoyable half-term holiday.

Yours sincerely,

Charles Joseph

Senior Vice Principal
