We understand that examinations can be a very stressful time for both parents and students. Here at RLS we want to see all of our students achieve the best that they can, so we have put together this information to help you with the exams that are conducted during your time at RLS.
Firstly, we would ask that you familiarise yourself with our Examination Procedures Policy. We have also uploaded out Separate Invigilation Policy for students in need of this facility, as well our Policy for Special Consideration, and information about our Internal Appeals process.
The above link has several useful links to information topics such as revision tips, exam survival tips, information from the NHS on coping with exam stress and a parent’s guide to exams. It is mainly targeted at parents of GCSE students Exam Stress.
One of the school counsellors has recently spoken to all Year 11, 12 and 13 form groups on managing stress at examination time. Following her talk, she left them with a small information booklet which hopefully they have shared with you. She also reminded them of the opportunity to speak to her on a 1:1 basis if required.
For the answers to some frequently asked questions about A-level and GCSEs from a parent’s point of view, we have found this guide by the Association of School and College Leaders extremely helpful.
