Centered Assessed Grades
As we finish the last week of the Grade Booster period, we wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for all of your support in these uncharted waters. Our teachers have been working tirelessly to uphold our driving principles as set out in our Mougins Centre Assessed Grades Process document.
These processes will be driven by the following principles:
- Ensuring our students are awarded the highest evidence based grades possible.
- Creating rigorous but light touch opportunities for students to demonstrate their ability in each subject area.
- Ensuring that educational pathways remain open to all of our students.
- Ensuring that our processes and deadlines are clearly communicated to students and parents.
- Ensuring that the integrity of our school remains intact throughout this process.
As part of this process, teachers will have spoken to students about the pieces of evidence that they will be sending to the examination boards. We are asking students to ‘sign off’ to say that they have had these conversations and that they understand why these pieces have been chosen. Just a reminder, teachers cannot discuss grades with students nor can students choose the evidence that will be submitted.
To do this, students are asked to fill out the Google Form posted on their year group Google Classroom by no later than Friday 11th June.
If you have any questions about this, please contact your child’s tutor teacher or feel free to contact Jane Ayerst, our Deputy Head: Curriculum, Academic and Structures.
World Environment Day
The 5th of June is World Environment Day and we have put some information about this important World Day. At Mougins school in Y7 we looked at WWF in English and Primary and Early Years Wear it Wild day, which supports the World Wildlife Fund.
REIMAGINE. RECREATE. RESTORE.
For too long, we have been exploiting and destroying our planet’s ecosystems.
Every three seconds, the world loses enough forest to cover a football pitch and over the last century we have& destroyed half of our& wetlands. As much as 50 per cent of our coral reefs have already been lost and up to 90 per cent of coral reefs could be lost by 2050, even if global warming is limited to an increase of 1.5°C.
Ecosystem loss is depriving the world of carbon sinks, like forests and peatlands, at a time humanity can least afford it. Global greenhouse gas emissions have grown for three consecutive years and the planet is one pace for potentially catastrophic climate change.
The emergence of COVID-19 has also shown just how disastrous the consequences of ecosystem loss can be. By shrinking the area of natural habitat for animals, we have created ideal conditions for pathogens – including coronaviruses – to spread.
With this big and challenging picture, the World Environment Day focuses on ecosystem restoration and its theme is “Reimagine. Recreate.Restore.”
Ecosystem restoration means preventing, halting and reversing this damage – to go from exploiting nature to healing it. This World Environment Day will kick off the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration (2021-2030), a global mission to revive billions of hectares, from forests to farmlands, from the top of mountains to the depth of the sea.
Only with healthy ecosystems can we enhance people’s livelihoods, counteract climate change and stop the collapse of biodiversity.
We can all health make our environments better and appreciate what we have. At Mougins school more emphasis is needed in looking after our beautiful campus, using the recycling bins and respecting what we have.
Have a lovely weekend and try to do something this weekend to help keep Our environment safe and healthy.
