Revision Guidance

High quality revision is key to students’ success at the end of Year 11. Increasingly, qualifications rely on 100% examination which are all at the end of the course; students could be tested on content which they covered right at the start of Year 10, so revision must be an ongoing and integral part of their approach to learning from the moment they embark upon their GCSE courses. At Moor End Academy, we provide a structured revision programme which is published so that students and parents are able to see which subjects are offering sessions at different times. These often take place after school, and are led by specialist staff who are able to work with individuals and small groups to ensure that understanding and application of key topics and skills are consolidated fully. In Year 11, we will often offer additional sessions during school holiday time; this allows us to provide extended revision sessions where students can explore elements of their courses in more depth.

Whilst we encourage attendance at as many sessions as students are able to commit to, we also appreciate that high-quality revision can take place without staff input - and we provide resources to support independent revision. On the school website, there are links to a number of resources which the academy funds so that students can benefit from these programmes at home. Show My Homework is one which we encourage, and staff can upload bespoke revision tasks and activities for students to complete. As a parent, you can download the app so that you can track homework and revision which has been set for your child.

The academy’s LORIC programme, which is covered during form period, will develop a range of skills and strategies for students to enable them to revise effectively in and out of school. We also recommend resources including revision guides for many subjects, and can often order these centrally so that we can offer them at a reduced price. In Years 10 and 11, your child will be provided with details of these revision resources. If you require any additional information, please contact your child’s form tutor in the first instance.

The M-Zone is available daily for homework and revision – you can use this time to access GCSE Pod, create revision cards and recall key information.

The library is available on Friday after school for Year 11 – why not choose a book to read for pleasure?

Please go straight to the booster you have chosen and make sure you are marked present on the register. At the end of the session leave via Main Reception and make sure you are ticked out. 

Students will not be allowed to wander the school. Students should only attend boosters or the M-Zone if they intend to engage and support their fellow learners: demonstrate respect, ambition and responsibility!
