KS3 Assessment Schedules and Information

During this week, students will complete in class assessments in each of their subjects. These assessments will not be formal exams but rather shorter summative assessments designed to identify each student’s strengths and also any gaps in their knowledge so that targeted support can be put in place during the 2021-2022 academic year. To support students in their preparation for these assessments, we have a created timetable for when they will take place, as well as a short leaflet outlining what subject specific content will be assessed including where students can access resources for their revision.

In the event that a student is unable to attend school during this assessment week due to self isolation or illness, teachers will provide the assessment via Microsoft Teams with an expectation that it would be completed and returned at the time of the student’s lesson, as much as is practicably possible.

Following on from this assessment week, we will provide students and parents/carers with an academic progress report. This report will be a short report to indicate students’ attainment and progress against their End of Year Targets for all of their subjects. We will then support this with a Parental Consultation Evening delivered remotely, so that students and parents/carers can receive specific feedback and guidance to aid students in their learning and progress as they prepare for the new academic year. Both the academic report and consultation evening are scheduled for early July, for which we will provide more detail after the May half term.

Thank you for your ongoing support and please do not hesitate to contact me via email at apritchardroberts@helsbyhigh.org if you have any queries regarding what is detailed in this letter.

Kindest regards
