GCSE Year 11 Language Changes
Dear Parent/ Carer,
I am writing to inform you that Year 11 Spanish and French students will be placed in teaching groups based on whether they are taking the foundation or higher exams from Monday, 3rd February. We have reached this decision after having considered many factors and believe that this will give students the highest level of support in the lead up to their exams. We considered each student’s Year 11 mock result alongside their teacher predicted grade, their target grade, and their class work when setting the groups.
The foundation and higher exams are very different in nature of task and level of difficulty. Although mixed ability has proved very successful in the teaching phase of the topics, we believe that it is sensible to move to more specialised and targeted ability grouping in the final phases of the course in which we will be focusing on exam technique and revision.
Students have received a personalised letter in their language lessons today, explaining which set they will be in for the remainder of the course and their new teacher (if applicable). Please ask to see this letter and if you have any questions or concerns after reading it, please do get in touch.
