30th January 2018
The autumn mock examinations at the
end of last term were a vital part of
the preparation for the 2018 summer
From the results information gained, teachers were
able to produce and provide individualised breakdowns
of revision topics/ skills (personalised
learning checklists), to help students perform at
their best when the time comes.
The evening was well attended and gave parents an
invaluable opportunity to informally discuss their
child’s progress, as well as look at ways that they
could actively support and help their child revise
for their GCSE exams.Students and parents were able to book and
attend subject-based workshops applicable to
their child, led by Heads of Faculty, with a
particular focus on Maths, English, Science,
Geography and History.
They had the opportunity to ask questions and to
look at the expectations of the exams, by being
able to review past papers. Attendees also
received an overview of what after-school
revision sessions are available per subject.
By the end of the evening, both students and
parents felt well-armed with the preparation tools
and recently launched revision apps, as well as a
better understanding of what is ‘coming’. And
above all, lots of practical ways to support the
work that Hayle Academy is doing, at home.
