Ofsted Inspection 11th and 12th November 2014

We are delighted to report that Meopham School has now officially been recognised as a “Good School” by Ofsted. We achieved a “Good” judgement for overall effectiveness, as well as in the five key areas of: Leadership and Management; Behaviour and Safety; Quality of Teaching; Achievement of Pupils; and Sixth Form Provision. The outcome of this Inspection reflects our own self‐evaluation of the school following our extremely pleasing examination results in the summer, and the findings of the Trust Review reported to you in September 2014. Staff and pupils have worked tirelessly to ensure that standards at Meopham School are now high. We are delighted with the official endorsement of our good work. We look forward to working with you and your sons/daughters into the future to ensure continued progress and further success.

Year 11 Pre-Public Examinations 1st December – 12th December 2014

Pupils in Year 11 will be sitting Pre-Public examinations from 1st December 2014 for a period of two weeks. During this time, pupils will also be beginning their Statistics coursework and will be working within the Maths department for a day.
It is vitally important pupils attend school during this two week period as it is important for pupils to gain a true experience of what it will feel like to sit examinations during a two week period as they will do in May/June 2015.
Some pupils in Year 10 will also be sitting examinations and this information has been relayed to them by their class teacher.

You can view and download a copy of the examination timetable here. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Mrs Wrighton.

The very successful Maths Intervention after school on Thursdays is starting up again this week. Weekly revision sessions take place every Thursday with each Maths teacher from 3.05 – 4.00pm. We strongly suggest that you encourage your child to attend as many sessions as possible. It is our belief that a number of students who achieved a C grade in Maths last year did so because of the consistent effort that they showed throughout the year and the attendance at Thursday sessions throughout the year.

In addition the Saturday morning sessions will be run again this year at a date nearer to the final examination in the summer, as will Easter revision sessions.
If you have any questions regarding your child’s progress in Maths or their attendance to the above mentioned interventions please do not hesitate to contact the school.
