WEEK 34 - Friday 18 June 2021

Hello and welcome to this week's Year 10 Blog.

Next week sees the Year 10 students start their End of Year Assessments and the opportunity for them to showcase their subject knowledge as well as highlighting any areas which may require some additional attention.

Over the past couple of weeks it has been fantastic to see so many Year 10 students taking advantage of the numerous after school revision sessions and those seeking extra guidance and advice from their teachers.

Information has been shared with the students explaining which revision guides are available and which guides may be beneficial in their future revision. I would certainly recommend encouraging your child to think about ‘revision’ and how prepared they are. I am a big believer in the benefit of forward planning and being prepared.

If you are concerned about your child or you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me: hoyyear10@hessleacademy.com

With the serious risk of sounding like a stuck record, I must once again mention ‘attendance’ and I urge you to discuss the importance of having ‘good’ attendance and how damaging missed days can have on your child's knowledge. ‘Lockdown 1, 2 and 3’ has inadvertently caused large periods of time away from the classroom and now more so than ever your child needs to be in front of their teachers.

In the final Summer Term Mrs Lacey and I will be meeting groups of students highlighted as potentially having ‘lower than hoped for attendance’, to discuss ways in which we can support them further.

I look forward to feeding back to you how the End of Term Assessments went in the next Year 10 Blog.

Until then, take care and stay safe.

Take care and stay safe.

Mr Julian

Head of Year 10

Mrs Lacey

Assistant Head of Year 10
