Summative assessments – part 2 – summer term 2017

Arrangements for summer summative assessments:

· Assessment week for Year 7 and Year 8 is week commencing 19th June

· Assessment week for Year 9 is week commencing 26th June

· Year 10 will have formal written exams from Thursday 22nd June to Friday 30th June, with practical exams the following week

· Year 7, 8 and 9 assessments will take place during students’ normal timetabled lessons during these weeks; no separate examination timetable will be published

· Year 10 will receive personal examination timetables shortly. When they do not have an examination they will be expected to be in their timetabled lesson.

· Most Year 7, 8 and 9 assessments will be designed to take about 30 minutes to complete, but students will be allowed longer than this to ensure that time is not a limiting factor

· Most students will actually spend this additional time reading their private reading book: please ensure that your child brings their personal reader with them to school, as they should every day.

Mathematics exams have been timetabled separately in order to allow a double period in the sports hall. They are as follows:

  • Year 7 Thursday 15th June P1-P2 (This is next week rather than during their assessment week)
  • Year 8 Monday 19th June P3-P4
  • Year 9 Monday 3rd July P3-P4 (This is in the week following their assessment week)
