Dear Parents / Carers,
During assemblies and form times, we are rolling out a programme to help students further develop a positive mind-set for A-level study. An overview of the mind-set model that we use at Bishop Challoner can be found on page 23 of the handbook. https://bishopchalloner.org.uk/sixth-form/about-us/student-parent-carer-handbook
All resources will be made available to students on the Year 13 Microsoft Teams channel under ‘files’. Please ask your son/daughter to show you this information and take time to discuss the material with them.
Students will be given a paper copy of the booklets that can be completed in college and at home. The purpose of the booklets is to allow students to self-evaluate their approach to A-level study and use the suggested techniques to maximise their success during Key Stage 5. Please look at these booklets with your daughter / son.
Please be reminded that students have been provided with the ‘Independent study support resources’ document which we hope they are finding useful. https://bishopchalloner.org.uk/news/2021-10-22-sixth-form-parent-carer-letter-year-13-independent-study-support
As always, please do not hesitate to get in touch with the Sixth Form team if you have any worries or concerns.
