Dear Student, Parent/Carer,
The Government is confident that the summer examination series will occur as was the case before the Covid-19 pandemic. However, they do appreciate that learning has been disrupted over the past two years for a variety of circumstances. Consequently, they have allowed some 'advanced information' to be released for each subject to aid in focussing revision.
Attached is a letter from Dr Jo Saxton, the Chief Regulator for Ofqual. She explains the rationale for the advanced information.
There are also some useful hyperlinks including one where all advanced information for all subjects can be found.
Teachers will be discussing the advanced information with students as courses end and revision lessons draw near over the coming weeks.
With regard to the forthcoming March Late Spring Assessments, these will still be going ahead to allow us as a school to have sufficient information to award Teacher Assessed Grades (TAGs) should the situation arise.
Trevor Watson Deputy Headteacher.
