"Has your school joined PiXL? If so you will have access to PLCs for the GCSE. Someone else on here may have these. (I do B so can't help you out I'm afraid). You can RAG rate the progress and then link this to planned intervention."

Emma Johns replied to Anna Mercy's discussion thoughts on today's physical paper?!!
"We've always done better with paper 1, I think a large part of this is that we are a girls school and physical geography is easier to learn in the sense that it is black and white. The girls are therefore more confident - as long as they…"
