The main summer GCSE timetable begins this week and all Y11s should have received their personalised timetable. Please encourage your child to get a good sleep the night before and eat a nutritious breakfast each morning to help sustain them throughout; for any students that would like to access this provision, we offer a free breakfast from 8:00am. There are a number of booster sessions also on offer throughout the examination period. If your child is not in an exam or a booster session they will be in normal lessons.

We also wish all our Y10s a successful work experience over the next two weeks and we will see you back in school after half-term on Monday 5th June.

 Here is a reminder of our expectations and new timetable.

  • There are 4 x 75 minute lessons per day - please see the image below for timings.
  • Students who are late to school will receive a 30 minute after school detention on the SAME DAY. Please remember that we offer a FREE breakfast to every student and school is open from 7.30am.
  • Students will receive a SAME DAY detention of 30 minutes for lateness and negative behaviour. Parents will receive a notification or phone call.
  • As a minimum, all students must bring with them 2 x pens, 1 x pencil, 1 x rubber and 1 x ruler in a pencil case.

Please see the picture below for our uniform expectations. Please note that these expectations have always applied but false nails will no longer be permitted due to health and safety and hygiene reasons in PE and Technology. Trainers will not be allowed unless a medical professional has specifically stated that trainers are needed for a particular condition.

As some parents will no doubt know, our Year 6, children are sitting their SATs (tests) in reading, maths and SPaG (spelling, punctuation and grammar) this week. These tests are both set and marked externally and your child’s marks will be used in conjunction with teacher assessment to give a broader picture of their attainment.  The best way to prepare for the tests each day is for the childrent to find teime to relax in the evening, get a good night’s sleep so they wake refreshed, and eat a good breakfast each morning. To access the breakfast club at Foljambe children must in school for 8:00am. 

The timetable for the SATs is as follows:

  • Monday 13th May English grammar, punctuation and spelling paper 1: questions (45 mins)
  • Monday 13th May English grammar, punctuation and spelling paper 2: spelling (15 mins)
  • Tuesday 14th May English reading paper (60 mins)
  • Wednesday 15th May Mathematics paper 1: arithmetic (30 mins)
  • Wednesday 15th May Mathematics paper 2: reasoning (40 mins)
  • Thursday 16th May Mathematics paper 3: reasoning (40 mins)
