Dear Students, Parent/Carers
We appreciate that since lock down life has been very
challenging and thank you for all your efforts adapting to the new ways in
which we are working and communicating with you. As we approach May Half Term,
we would like to update you on some key items for Year 11.
GCSE Exam Grades
Teachers are currently in the process of submitting GCSE exam
grades following the guidance provided by Ofqual and exam boards. Mrs
Sutcliffe has already outlined this process in more detail with
you in an earlier communication which can be found on our school
website. The final grades awarded to learners will be decided by the
exam boards and moderated by Ofqual.
We kindly ask that staff are not contacted regarding this matter. If you
do have a query please email: email@example.com
Once we have submitted the grades and have more information
about results day in August we will write to you again.
End of Year Celebrations (Leavers Assembly & Prom)
Under the current circumstances we regret to inform you that we will not
be able to celebrate this cohorts achievements in the traditional BA
way and have had to cancel the leaver’s assembly and prom.
Any payments made for the prom will be fully refunded and our
finance team will be in touch before the end of this academic year to explain
how we intend to manage this process in a safe, secure and efficient
We would love to have some form of celebration event in the autumn term
to give our learners an opportunity to mark this milestone in their academic
journey but at this point in time this is not something that we can commit
to. We will write to you again if and when this position changes.
As per the advice given by Ofqual Year 11 learners are no longer
required to complete work for their GCSE subjects.
From the 1st of June we will be uploading a range of resources to our
Virtual School to help learners prepare for life beyond Year 11 so please
encourage your child to access these resources.
