Year 11 Guidance to Parents/Carers

Dear Parents/Carers,

Following the announcement on Thursday 19th March 2020 stating that GCSE exams for this academic year have been cancelled, we are waiting on further guidance from Examination Boards, OFQUAL and the Department for Education on how grades will be awarded. Whilst we appreciate that this will be an anxious time, we will not be making any decisions on grades at this stage. Please be reassured that when the academy is asked, we will use our best professional judgement supported by all known evidence in order to ensure that all our pupils receive the final grade that they deserve.

In order to help support our Year 11 students and prepare them for Post 16 courses, we have been and will continue to set subject specific resources on Doddle. These resources help to provide structure and routine at this difficult time and we would encourage all pupils to access these resources and keep in contact with their subject teachers.

Kind Regards

Mr A Bissoo
