Options Information for 2019-20
At Laurence Jackson School we believe we provide a broad and balanced curriculum for all, through a personalised learning pathway to meet individual student needs.
The Options Convention Evening and joint Y9 Parents Evening, is held on Thursday 7th February 2019. This is organised to ensure our students make the right informed choices, based on their learning pathways, for their future
Our Options Convention Evening provides the opportunity to talk to staff and Y10 students currently studying the subjects to discuss the curriculum content, the assessments, and examinations as well as being able to look at other student’s works to gain a valuable insight to the work the students will be doing in their KS4 curriculum.
One to one interviews are held with parents and students to discuss the relevant learning pathways, using the most recent data and recommendations to produce a personalised curriculum. These interviews, will be conducted with a member of the SLT team and/or the form tutor or associate tutor. These interviews take place on Thursday 28th February 2019.
