Update on Summer Exams 2021 (updated w/c 25/1/2021)
Following the Secretary of State for Education’s announcement that examinations would not proceed as originally planned in England, Ofqual have launched two consultations on the arrangements they are proposing for the award of this year’s results . Parents and students are encouraged to contribute responses to these proposals. The consultation closes on the 29th January 2021 and we can expect Ofqual to make final decisions on the awarding process over the weeks that follow – there is no indication when they aim to publish their final proposals. When they do however, the school will communicate further information on the finalised arrangements. Please use the link below if you wish to contribute to this consultation.
