Year 11 Support
As our year 11 pupils progress through their final year at Leeds East Academy and begin to prepare for GCSE examinations, we will ensure that they are supported both academically and pastorally to finish their journey with us successfully and are prepared their next steps in further education and careers. The below provides an overview of what will be provided and implemented over the remainder of this academic year.
Support and Intervention
Given the amount of learning time that has been disrupted by COVID-19, we are looking to seize every opportunity to support our students, ensuring that their remaining year with us is maximised. To accomplish this, subject specialists will be providing students with a host of bespoke and targeted intervention opportunities based on individual needs to support their progress to achieve strong academic outcomes.
It is important that students utilise these opportunities.
Before and After School Intervention
The academy provides a comprehensive before and after school intervention offer, targeting key knowledge and skills. Morning sessions start at 8.00am. Afternoon sessions commence at the end of the academy day.
Please encourage your child to utilise these additional opportunities.
2022 – 2023 timetable coming soon.
GCSE Results Day 2022
Date: Thursday 25th August
Time: Collection between 09:00am and 11:00am
Location: LEA Sports Hall
We know that GCSE Results day is a day that we all look forward to with a mix of excitement and often, a great deal of apprehension. These results are the culmination of years of hard work. We are incredibly proud of the resilience, integrity, and ambition that this Year 11 cohort have showcased. Results Day is a key milestone moment for your child, and we look forward to welcoming them back on 25th August to share in and celebrate their achievements.
Whilst pupils are collecting results specialist colleagues will be available to provide further guidance relating to academic outcomes and further education/careers. Members of staff from Leeds City College will also be based within the academy to provide appropriate support.
In the event that there are changes in circumstances prior to Thursday 25th August, updated plans will be communicated with you.
Frequently Asked Questions:
What does my child receive on Results Day?
On results day your child will be issued with an envelope which will include the following:
- A single document that will detail all results.
- Guidance on the dispatch of formal GCSE certificated from exam boards – these arrive in school about three months after results day.
What if my child is unable to collect their results in person on Results Day?
Please note that GCSE Results belong to the pupil only and cannot be collected by another person. If the pupil is unable to collect their results, they can nominate a close relative of their family (not friend, neighbour or acquaintance) to collect their results in their place. The pupil must provide written confirmation (email or letter) to the school that their nominated person can collect for them. That person must also provide ID at the collection point, along with the letter.
What if my child and the family is unable to collect their results on Results Day?
If a pupil and their family are unable to collect their results on the day, they can request their results to be emailed to them by the school. This request must be made by Wednesday 24th August.
The pupil themself must email the school at email@example.com and address the email to Mrs Page by Wednesday 24th August. Pupils must send the email using their school email address. Again, as the results belong to the pupil, results can only be emailed to the pupil themselves.
November Resits – Advance Information
English Language & Mathematics
If your child has not met the entry requirements for their chosen college or sixth form, or if they have not achieved grade 4, they may be required to resit these subjects in the November 2022 Examination series.
The Examinations Council has decided, similarly to the Summer Exam series, that students will be provided with Advance Information for November Resits. This is because it is the same cohort, whose academic career has been greatly impacted by the pandemic.
Exam boards released the Advance Information at the end of June.
Different destinations will study different exam boards so please request this information if your child is required to resit.
When students were required to work from home, we all adapted to accessing online resources and were able to use these to continue studying. We want to continue to utilise this as a provision to support the progress of our students. Using Class Charts, subject teachers will set bespoke interventions for targeted students based on individual need and target grade.
Interventions will be set weekly on Mondays commencing from 31st May. These interventions will be in addition to home learning set and target students will be rotated throughout the year.
