Synergy Multi-Academy Trust comprises ten Norfolk schools serving children between the ages of 2 and 18. Our schools work collaboratively together to raise standards and provide education of the highest possible standard, offering the best of opportunities for pupils. The Trust was initially established in 2015. We believe that all of our schools have strengths and areas to develop, and that all can improve through sharing expertise and wisdom. The Trust understands that there will be excellent practice in each school, and that every school will be able to contribute to the development of the Trust as a whole.
Revision and techniques
We’ve been covering revision and techniques in our recent Year 11 assemblies.
The key message to students was to focus revision using the methods that work best:
- Retrieval practice, including using flash cards and past paper questions to check understanding
- Spacing out when this is done e.g. to a schedule
These methods make a real cumulative difference.
