As you are already aware GCSE examinations for the 2018/19 academic year will begin on Monday 13 May 2019 and continue until Friday 14 June 2019.
The Department for Education guidelines surrounding study leave state that students are not entitled to study leave, and that the decision to have study leave lies with the individual school/academy. Research shows that few students can study independently for this extended period of time, and that they benefit from a targeted revision program in school coupled with focused independent learning at home.
We also feel with the introduction of the new GCSE exams changing to become more ‘rigorous’ (according to the Department for Education) and the raising of grade boundaries, that our students being in school for a longer period of time will allow for better exam preparation.
YR 8 reading list has been emailed to YR 8 parents today. Remember 'Reading gives us someplace to go when we have to stay where we are'. With the current weather & the lockdown why not take sometime time to escape from it all in the pages of a book. @BarlbyEng@Barlby_Highpic.twitter.com/zXaC…
Just had a fabulous lesson with Year 8 students where they presented their own research on weapons of the First World War. Some shared slide shows with the class while others composed poetry. I couldn't get them off the meeting when our time was up! Fabulous. @Barlby_High
