There will be a presentation
There will be a presentation by Mr Curran (Deputy Headteacher) and Ms Pearce (Head of Year 10) to further clarify the changes from letters to numbers in our new GCSE’s, especially following the last set of data reports sent home.
They will also explain the difference between Predicted (PRED) and working now at (WNA) grades.
To help you understand these changes and to share with you some things you can do to help your son with English, Mathematics and Science we would like to invite you to a talk on the evening of Tuesday 23 May.
The venue for this meeting is the LRC in the 6th Form Building. There will be a 20-minute presentation followed by questions and answers from Mr Curran and Ms Pearce at 6pm and this will be repeated at 7pm.

You can find a copy of our most recent school E-Safety Policy on our Policies page.
Confirmation of the school rules on Electronic devices can also be read here.
The comprehensive list of e-Safety web links below is aimed at providing information and better awareness to students, teachers and parents/carers of the issues relating to the use of the Internet, mobile phones and other ICT technologies.
Communication systems such as social networks, blogs, mobile phones and email have become increasingly important in our daily lives and often have important benefits but, as we all know, there are also risks to be considered and evaluated.
Access to the Internet can take place almost anywhere at any time and it is important that students, teachers and parents/carers are aware of the risks and know how to use modern technologies appropriately and are able to discuss the issues in school, at home and between friends and what actions to take when something goes wrong.
Rutlish School has integrated E-Safety lessons, across the year groups, and this webpage provides additional support.
The websites below provide a comprehensive list of links and information about online safety so parents/carers, and their children, can decide what is right for their family when using the Internet and associated technologies.

BBC – A guide to using the Internet.

Expert View articles, ‘How to’ guides and Take Action checklists will help parents to stay up-to-date and feel more confident about getting involved.
DIGIZEN – Provides information for educators, parents/carers, and young people. It is used to strengthen awareness and understanding of what digital citizenship is and encourages users of technology to be and become responsible citizens.
E-safety Advisor – The latest e-safety parents newsletter.
Internet Safety: Understanding Terms and Conditions – Many of us, maybe even all of us, ignore what is written in the terms and conditions of the internet and software services that we use on a daily basis. This is a gross misjudgement, but who has time to do that and don’t we trust those companies to look after our data properly.
We tell children to be careful online, but as adults we ignore many of the rules, so why would children be any different? The Children’s Commissioner published a report recently called ‘Growing Up Digital’. The report makes interesting reading, but one aspect particularly caught media attention.
Around half of 8 – 15 year olds use Instagram. The ‘Growing Up Digital’ report authors asked legal firm, Schillings, to look over the 17 pages of Instagram’s Terms and Conditions, written at a level that could only be understood by a graduate. Schillings own lawyers simplified the TaC to help children (and the rest of us probably) understand what they mean.
Here are two of the reader-friendly clauses:
“Officially you own any original pictures and videos you post, but we are allowed to use them, and we can let others use them as well, anywhere around the world. Other people might pay us to use them and we will not pay you for that.” (or put more simply, we can sell the stuff you upload without asking you or paying you.)
“We might send you adverts connected to your interests which we are monitoring. You cannot stop us doing this and it will not always be obvious that it is an advert.” (or put more simply, we can send you stuff and you won’t know it’s an advert.)
Instagram’s simplified Terms and Conditions can be found by clicking on the Internet Safety: Understanding terms and conditions link.
