GCSE Strategy

The GCSE Strategy is an overarching strand that covers all areas of the school.  Its aim is to ensure we have prepared our pupils in the best way possible so that they achieve their very best at GCSE.  It covers 4 main components:

  1. PUPILS –
    1. Preparing pupils so they are mentally prepared for their GCSE year. 
    2. Ensuring they are able to organise their revision and are supported as and when they struggle. 
    3. Ensuring they are confident for their next steps (College/Apprenticeships/ Traineeships) are and are fully aware how they achieve this.
    1. Ensuring that all subject teachers are preparing their pupils well for their GCSE.
    2. A clear mapped out overview of what they are teaching/revising over the year.
    3. GCSE Strategy Packs to facilitate the revision process.


  3. PARENTS –
    1. Ensuring all parents know how they can best support their children throughout the year.


  4. Identifying and supporting WHOLE SCHOOL TARGET GROUPS.
    1. Ensuring identified target groups receive the necessary additional support so they can overcome any barriers to learning they may have.
