Further details on exams and grades
As you may be aware we are awaiting further guidance about the detail from the Department for Education and the Awarding Bodies regarding the summer 2020 examinations.The link is here
The exam regulator, Ofqual, and exam boards will work with teachers to provide grades to students whose exams have been cancelled this summer, following our actions to slow the spread of coronavirus.
Students’ predicted grades are likely to be used for their data to be submitted to the DfE alongside other yet to be decided information.
Yr 11 will be set some online work – they need to keep their hand in and challenge themselves. We do know that if they are not happy with our predicted grade they may well have an opportunity to do a test in the Autumn. Therefore they should not disconnect from their learning. A timetable of work will be followed as outlined on the table below, this work will commence from Wednesday with emails explaining the detail arriving each day by 9am.
As for preparing for College – particularly A Levels , students will be signposted to their 6th form providers advance reading lists and pre-course work, this may not happen immediately, but will develop in due course.
Alongside of this work, Students can join in with the Mr Brookes workout every day at 9 am, via the school Facebook page. There are also additional well-being and mindfulness activities being sent out weekly by Mrs Kinchin-Frost.
