Coronavirus Information

FRIDAY 3rd APRIL

Dear Parents Carers and Students,

The announcement from the Government regarding examinations has been made public this morning.

Please note that schools have been directed that they will NOT be permitted to share the submitted grades with students or parents. I know this will be a very difficult position to be in as a parent myself, however, we simply will not be permitted to share this information.

Please refer to the link below which shows guidance for teachers, students and parents:

Summer_2020_grades_for_GCSE_AS_A_level_EPQ_AEA_in_maths_-_guidance_for_teachers_students_parents.pdf

We are setting up a dedicated email address for any queries directly linked to exams and assessment and this will be published once it is up and running.

I would just reiterate that you must not worry. Everyone will be trying to be understanding and supportive to ensure that students can access the right courses and routes next year.

Best Wishes

Julie Hazeldine
