Results Day- 20th August 2020

RESULTS day is on 20th August

You will have received a letter from school but just to remind you:

 

We hope you are well and staying safe. As the school year draws to a close, we wanted to inform you about arrangements for year 11 Results Day. Due to COVID-19 this cannot run the way it has previously.  Results will be available on Thursday 20th August. Students will be able to collect their results from school but so that we are able to adhere to social distancing measures, they must follow the system outlined below:

  • Students will be able to get their results from the Sports Hall
  • They will be given a specific time slot to collect their results
  • Before entering the building, they will need to line up
  • Upon entering the Sports Hall they will be asked to sanitise their hands
  • Once they have collected their results, there will be a help desk available for students to discuss their results and next steps with a member of staff
  • There will also be a desk collecting information about what the student expects to do next year
  • Once students have received their results and accessed any support they might need, they will be asked to leave the premises
  • Students will not be able to collect their results at any time other than the time they are issued
  • If they arrive early, they will have to wait outside the building, until their allotted time 
  • If they arrive late they will not be able to collect their results   
  • If students are unable to collect their results in person, results will be posted out on 21st August
  • If, as a parent or carer, you wish to accompany your child, we must ask that you wait in the car park.  Unfortunately you will not be able to accompany them into the building
  • We will be unable to issue results to anyone other than the student themselves

    We would like to take this opportunity to wish our year 11 students the very best of luck and look forward to seeing them on August 20th

How your results have been awarded

Key Messages about the grading process:

  • Teachers know their students well and centres are able to assess grades with a high degree of accuracy.
  • The grades centres submitted to the exam boards were agreed by the centre following an internal quality assurance process and are not the sole responsibility of any individual teacher.
  • The standardisation model developed by Ofqual and the awarding organisations is statistical and may not reflect the grades submitted by the centre.
  • The standardisation process applied by the exam boards ensures grades awarded this year are consistent with those awarded to other cohorts in other years.
  • This was the fairest possible approach available under extreme circumstances. It is a rigorous process which means that grades awarded this year are as valid as in any other year.
  • This will allow pupils to progress to the next stage of their lives in the normal way

     

    We are sure this will be a time for celebration but if for any reason, results are not as expected please make sure you read the letter about appeals and complaints.  This will be in the results pack you receive on the day but can also be found here
