Languages Controlled Assessment for Speaking - Year 11

Dear Parent / Carer,

I am writing to inform you about the controlled assessment for speaking that has been set for your child last week in Modern Foreign Languages (MFL). This assessment is worth 15% of your child’s overall GCSE grade and it is, therefore, particularly important that they prepare for it adequately. This letter aims to help you to support your child in his/her preparation by answering some frequently asked questions regarding controlled assessments in MFL.

Your child has already been given a copy of the task which they should have attached into their exercise book – an electronic copy can be found on the Year 11 page of the MFL section of the school website.

Each controlled assessment has strict rules surrounding it which have been set by the examination board (Edexcel), the guidance attached below aims to answer any questions that you or your child may have:
