Mock Results Day for Year 11

08 December 2017

On Friday 15th December Leytonstone School will be hosting a mock results day for the Year 11 students, beginning at 8:15. To help support the students with this, morning intervention will not take place that Friday, but they will be expected for an 8.15am start in the main hall. This will also allow students enough time to open their results, digest the information and be ready to start lessons as normal at 9:00.

They will receive their mock results in the same manner that will receive their GCSE results next summer, opening a brown envelope in the main hall. This will be a tense time for our students, so we want to ensure they feel supported. As a result, form tutors, select senior members of staff and Head of Year will also be present, and lessons that day will consist of reflections on the results, with each pupil given individualised areas for revision.

We want to stress a ‘fall forward’ mentality where students see these results as an opportunity to direct their revision. To help with this, on Tuesday 19th December pupils will be with tutors designing revision calendars. From these results, we will also assign period 6 provision to the area most in need for students to ensure they can cover any gaps in their knowledge.

In addition to mock results day, please be aware that students are not allowed to leave school during the school day to attend college interviews. They must instead, as in previous years, contact the college and re-arrange them for after school. This is to ensure students do not miss any lesson time which could in turn, hinder their progress.

Free Breakfast for Year 11 Students During Mock Exams

10 November 2017

Dear Parent/Carers

 As you are aware, the Year 11 mock exams will start from Monday 13th November 2017 and will run for 2 weeks.

In order to fully support our students, encourage health and wellbeing we will be providing a free breakfast for every young person.  This will be available from 8:00 am in the restaurant every day for 2 weeks.

We understand that exams can be a stressful time for students and it is important that students are supported and their wellbeing is the best it can be. In order to support our students with dealing with exam stress and other issues related to their wellbeing, we will have members of staff from the inclusion team who will be available to meet students in the morning before each exam.

 

Y11 Kingswood Trip

01 November 2017

Kingswood Trip 2017

Please see attached document for details of activities during the Y11 Kingswood trip on Friday 3rd November – Sunday 5th November.

Students are in school on Friday in non uniform, they will leave their bags for kingswood in the sports changing rooms which will be locked all day so the students bags are safe.

After lunch time they will gather their belongings and meet with all staff going on the trip in the main hall. Here students will receive the expectations for the trip from Headteacher and Head of Year . The main expectation is at night time, students are in their rooms by 10.30 and lights out by 11pm. Once in their rooms at 10.30, a clear instruction is that they are not to leave for the night, they all have en-suite rooms so toilets are availible for them in their rooms. We take safeguarding very seriously so a clear expectation is that boys are not allowed in girls rooms and girls are not allowed in boys rooms.

The schedule for the weekend is on this document.

Our collection from Kingswood on the sunday is 1:45 so the approximate time of arrival back at Leytonstone School will be 3:15 pm

Year 11 Support Evening

31 October 2017

Re: Year 11 Support Evening:  Thursday 9th November 2017 4.30 – 6.30pm

We are currently eight weeks into the final year of your child’s secondary education.

In just seven months, pupils will be sitting their final GCSE exams ready to embark on the next phase of their learning journeys.

This may seem like a scary proposition for your child, but it is also an exciting one.  This year provides the potential to achieve great things.

At Leytonstone we want all students to achieve the best possible results. To ensure this we need to make sure that we continue to work together in supporting pupils towards that same goal.

The year ahead requires hard work and we understand that you, as parents, may have questions or concerns.

On Thursday 9th November we would like to invite you into school to meet with the Year 11 team to discuss your child’s progress and any support that they may need in order to help them to fulfil their potential.

At the support evening you will have the opportunity to speak with heads of core subject departments about the curriculum your child is following and the forthcoming exams. You will also have the opportunity to speak with your child’s form tutor who will provide you with information about your child’s current attainment and support and interventions that your child might need heading into this busy exam period.

I really hope you can come along and look forward to meeting you in person on this evening.

Early Closure 20th October 2017

18 October 2017

Dear Parent/Carer,

Thank you all for a wonderful start to the 2017 academic year. We have seen a marked improvement in both uniform and in students’ preparedness for school in terms of equipment and school bags. Thank you all for your support in this matter.

As Friday is the end of half term, we will finish at 1.20 – there will be no period 5. Lunches will be provided for students who would like one. I would like to apologise for not reminding parents of this earlier – if it creates any problems for any family in terms of child care, please do contact the school immediately. There are ample staff on site to look after your child if required.

Friday is not a non-uniform day and students should be in full school uniform as usual.

School restarts on the 30th October.
