As a number of you have contacted the school to ask for support for students in structuring the half-termly projects, I have asked colleagues to provide more guidance.
Every Monday, there will be messages on Edulink, suggesting either what activities to complete each week or how much time should be spent on that subject. This is just a suggestion to help students approach the project work, if they have developed a different way of working, which is successful, then it is fine for them to continue with that.
Also, in response to received feedback, staff will be asking students to submit some work to make sure they are on the right track at a key interim point within the project. Teachers will not mark the individual pieces of work, but instead will give some general feedback to the class via Edulink. Obviously if a student is totally off track, teachers will support them on a more individual basis.
Remember if there are any questions about the work, please email teachers during the lesson time and they will try and get back to you as soon as possible.
