Developing confident, respectful and successful young people
At the start of their GCSE, each student is given a progress booklet that includes a range of PLC’s, revision tips, course overviews and progress tracker. Students are expected to engage with this in lessons and during revision in order to succeed in GCSE geography. Students will RAG rate lessons, ensure they have notes on the lessons and revisit lessons as part of this process.

If your child has questions, they can: 1. Find lessons on MS Teams 2. Use insight to see their h/w 3. Speak to the teacher during or after the lesson.
