As your child comes to the end of their time at Fisher More, I take this opportunity to thank them for all their hard work over the years. The next few weeks will be a busy period for all Year 11 students; this letter outlines some key dates that you may wish to note.
As you are aware, all pupils will have their grades determined by their teachers. For GCSEs, teachers will use a range of evidence to assess pupils, including classwork, tests and exam-board set tasks. For BTECs and other vocational qualifications, there will be a similar approach, using exams and non-exam assessments that have already been completed, along with work completed before the lock-down and after the return to school. As part of the gathering of evidence to support grades, we are facilitating a final assessment week, which will take place on the week beginning Monday 10 May 2021. During this week, all pupils will complete final assessments in each of their subject areas. These assessments will be completed in controlled ‘exam style’ conditions and may be used as part of a teacher’s final judgement of a pupil’s grade. A timetable for this week has already gone out to pupils. The final assessed grades must be submitted to the exam boards by Friday 18 June 2021
School for Year 11 will finish Fisher More on Friday 28 May 2021. We will hold a special celebratory assembly for the students during the morning and they will be leave school by 12.00noon. There is no requirement for your child to attend school after this time.
We are fully aware that your child has missed out on a lot of opportunities during their last two years at Fisher More. Unfortunately, we cannot run a school prom in the current climate but would like to invite pupils back to a celebratory outside event on Wednesday 30 June 2021, time to be confirmed. This is being arranged by our Senior Prefect Team and more details will follow in due course. We will also have our school Leavers’ Book to celebrate the achievements and memories of their time at Fisher More.
If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch with myself at firstname.lastname@example.org
