A message for Year 10 students

As you will be aware you will have your Year 10 assessment week beginning on the 11th May.

In this week you will not have any Teams lesson work set, instead you will be expected to complete assessments. The assessments will be based on some of the work that you have been completing during and before the lockdown. Each assessment will be an ‘open book’ assessment – this means that you can use the information that you have in your notes to support your answers, however, all of the work must be your own.

Below is the timetable for you assessments to be completed. On each day the assessments that are due to be set for that day will become available in a central Teams area that you will have access to. There will be further details of this next week. On the same that day that you have your assessment you will be expected to return it to your teacher in the way that your teacher has identified.

If you are unsure of anything related to your assessment it is your responsibility to contact your teacher.

Here is the timetable for that week – when you do not have an assessment during the week you should be revising and ensuring that your notes are organised.

Please read the information below carefully.

  • Combined Science students will sit their exams at the same time as Triple Science students.
  • Art and Photography assessments may be set a longer task, which should be done in free sessions throughout the week.
  • Some students may have a clash on Thurs 14th May, so their second assessment should be completed in their next free session.

Kind regards
The Purbeck School
