Important information for Year 11 students and parents

The Department for Education has outlined that all Year 11 students will receive a calculated grade to replace this summer's exams.  Teachers will be asked to submit their judgement about the grade that they believe the student would have received if exams had gone ahead.

To produce this, teachers will take into account a range of evidence and data including performance on mock exams and non-exam assessment – clear guidance on how to do this fairly and robustly will be provided to schools and colleges. The exam boards will then combine this information with other relevant data, including prior attainment, and use this information to produce a calculated grade for each student, which will be a best assessment of the work they have put in.

 

We do not yet have any further details but will update all parents as soon as we do.  However, we do know that the Department for Education has said it is possible that not all students will receive the predicted grade submitted by their teacher.  Students will be able to appeal this and there will be an exam option for those that wish it as soon as is reasonably possible after schools reopen. For this reason we would urge all Year 11 students to continue to complete the work provided by their teachers.
