As part of our English curriculum at KS3, all students have a Bedrock account and are expected to engage in Bedrock weekly as part of their homework. Students are targeted to achieve 20 points each week. Points are achieved when students are making progress and this has a positive impact across the curriculum as Bedrock covers all curriculum subjects. In addition to developing vocabulary, Bedrock has also launched a grammar programme which is designed to support students in their understanding and application of the rules of English grammar. Students can use either the vocabulary programme or the grammar programme to collect their points – we recommend a combination of the two.
Each month, the English class in year 7, year 8 and year 9 who achieve the most points will be rewarded with an early lunch – beating the queues and getting the best seats in the dining room!

Your child will need to ask their English teacher for their ‘access code’.
