GCSE from September 2015|
Working with GCSEs with 100% examinations remains a challenge for both pupils and teachers
Outcomes from Summer 2017 provide little stability in terms of exam board expectations and grade boundaries.
Lancashire English Consultant, Anne Kenworthy has carried out action research with partner schools to consider best approaches to delivery of the specifications; preparing pupils for the independence required of such exams and the revision process. The outcomes of ths research is shared with schools who attend the Subject Leaders' network meeting (see courses page).
Outcomes and support are available to all schools and bespoke support and training can be arranged by contacting Anne firstname.lastname@example.org
A Five Year Fightpath
We are aware that the road to GCSE is now a clear five year plan. Based on action research, Lancashire now has a model five year course exemplifying challenge and progress across all abilities and all five years. Bespoke support and training can be arranged (contact email@example.com) if schools are looking to raise their schemes to ensure appropriate differentiation and challenge whilst maintaining pupils' engagement.
