Series 1 Assessment Week
As you will be aware, students have recently undertaken their first whole-school assessment week, during which all lesson timetables were collapsed, and students completed assessments across all of their GCSE subjects. The Year 10 Team were delighted with the positive attitude to learning and the mature approach that was demonstrated by so many of our students. The vast majority of Year 10 students did not receive any negative points and as such, will receive three praise points each as a reward from their form tutors.
Students will be using lesson time from next week to review the feedback from their teachers and ‘upgrade’ their assessments.
As a reminder, you will be able to view your child’s assessment results, along with a score for their attitude to learning, on Go4Schools from the 30th November 2023.
Praise and Behaviour
The table below, should give you some context in terms of the average praise and negative logs from across Year 10.

We are delighted to inform you that the initial phase of the rollout of iPads has gone extremely well. We believe that the devices will become a crucial part of the learning journey and will not only enhance the learning experience for our students, but will over time, fundamentally change the way our students learn.
Students have attended an assembly where we reiterated the very clear expectations in terms of conduct using their new devices. In addition, when the students were given their iPads for the first time, they have also been reminded again about what they are allowed and not allowed to do when using their school iPads. Please find attached the behaviour expectations for all students with an iPad and consequences for misuse of an iPad, that is aligned to our Praise and Behaviour policy.
We request that all parents and carers read the attached information carefully and discuss this with your children. Please do also remind your child that school has a very sophisticated system that monitors all use of all school devices including the iPads. This also includes technology that sends screenshots to select senior members of staff at school for any infringements of the attached policy. We would also like to remind students that the device remains the property of the school and if there are serious breaches of the school’s Acceptable Use Policy (please see following link: https://atlp.org.uk/files/2022/11/Acceptable-use-Students.pdf#acceptable-use-policy-students/) or of the attached iPad behaviour expectations, school reserves the right to limit a student’s access with the device or remove the device from the student in order to prevent further misuse.
We would like to thank all of our parents and carers for your support in this matter.
