As we approach a crucial time in your Son's/Daughter's education, we would like to share with you the following updates and opportunities.

Year 11 students are expected in school every day until 7/6/19. On Monday 20th May they’ll be given a bespoke timetable for the week, please ensure all students are in registration to receive the information.

As you will be aware we have devised an amended timetable for year 11’s last two weeks at Aberconwy in order to ensure they have support from subject specialists in the run up to the final exams. Your son/daughter will be expected to attend until Friday 7th June and take advantage of the provisions put in place.

Arrangements for Friday 7th June

After the morning examination on this date there will be a farewell assembly in the 6th form Hub, in order to allow pupils one final opportunity to meet with their friends and form tutors.  At 12.20 anybody not taking an examination in the afternoon will be allowed to leave school.  Consequently, you may decide to pick up your child or allow them to make their own way home. From this date on, their attendance will only be required for exams.

For any subsequent examinations after 7th June pupils are expected to arrive at school in full uniform for morning examinations or arrive at lunch time for afternoon sessions.  Once an examination has been completed pupils have the opportunity to leave school if they so wish.  School transport is available at the normal times and anybody who leaves outside these times is no longer the responsibility of the school.

If due to transport difficulties, you would like your son/daughter to remain in school in the afternoon of the 7th June or for normal school hours on the dates of their exams please contact Mrs Wigzell on This email address is being protected from spambots.

We wish them all the best and thank you for your continued support.

 

Extended school day

In order to further support students we are offering an optional ‘Extended school day’ for all year 11 students, which will run until 4:30pm every day. There will be a study base, which will be somewhere they can work quietly, do homework, complete coursework and do an hour of their allocated revision time. This will run instead of breakfast club as we know the afternoon is a better time for the students. Students will also have the opportunity to attend revision sessions that are relevant to them or arrange to complete work in departments according to their priorities. The revision session timetable is on the school website under the ‘supporting year 11’ section.

 

The Extended school day will run on a three tier basis:

  • Tier 1 Voluntary – This is for all students. All are welcome to attend to get a big chunk of revision done before they even leave school.
  • Tier 2 Recommended - This is where a subject teacher has raised a concern with your son/daughter’s progress and feels that they would like them to attend in order to help them get back on track. You will receive a phone call from myself, Mrs Wigzell or from subject teachers asking for your support in this.
  • Tier 3 Expected - This is where the student has outstanding coursework OR requires intervention and extra support in order to give them the best possible chance of achieving their potential. You will be notified of this via a letter or email.

 

I apologise that we will not be able to issue bus passes to students attending these sessions, unless they fall into tier 3 and are expected to attend.
