With the start of the second half term sees preparation of the assessment cycle for Term 2. The assessment period in all subjects will commence on Wednesday 24th February and end on Friday 4th March. Year 7 students have been working with their tutors in Guidance on revision techniques and study skills as these are very important skills to learn early on in Secondary. Please can you do all you can to support your son/daughter in the build-up to and completion of these assessments. While they are not formal exams, they are a strong indication of current levels and progress. Results will then be released in due course following the assessments and will be formally recorded on the next round of reports.
