What will this mean for you and your child?
Our Headteacher explains in the following short videos…
What is Fair Access Banding and why are we using it at Moor Park High School and Sixth Form?
What will my child be asked to do as part of the assessment?
My child is worried about doing an assessment – how will you support them?
Will my child be more likely to get into the school if they do well in the assessment?
Is it a pass or fail assessment?
How are places allocated after the assessment?
What happens if my child doesn’t sit the assessment?
What happens if an ability band is oversubscribed?
What do you do with the information from the assessments – do you use it to create sets?
My child has a sibling already at the school. Will my child still be required to complete the assessment?
We live very close to the school. Does my child need to complete the assessment?
Families in my local area say when they have applied for a place at Moor Park High School and Sixth Form they have been unsuccessful as they live too far away. Is it worth applying and sitting the assessment if we live outside the ‘catchment area’?
What happens if my child has an Education Health Care Plan or is a looked after child?
When is the Fair Access Banding assessment and how do I register?
What do I need to do next to secure a place for my child at Moor Park High School and Sixth Form?
