Further to our earlier message to students and parents regarding the process that will be used to calculate individual results now that the normal summer examinations will not go ahead, we have, this morning received new information from Ofqual which we wish to share with you.
Ofqual have issued guidance to schools outlining the data that we will be required to submit on behalf of every student and in every GCSE or A Level subject. This is a massive piece of work and one that we are now working on. As you will see from the guidance that has been issued today, Ofqual are very clear that we are unable to discuss any information about students performance, individually or collectively. We informed you of this in the previous email but it is very much confirmed today by the regulator.
Likewise, we have previously pointed out that we are not in a position to accept any new work submissions or lobbying of any kind from students or parents. We will be working hard in the background to best represent the efforts and attainment of all of our students within the clear rules that we have today been issued with.
Once you have looked at the guidance documents, that we have attached as links to this message, if you have any further questions, comments or concerns, please direct them in all instances to: firstname.lastname@example.org
This inbox will be monitored by senior staff who are best placed to get you the most up to date answers to the issues that are causing concern. We understand how concerned students, parents and staff are about the impact on the summer results caused by the nation’s response to the Coronavirus pandemic. However, we would also like to assure you that we will continue to do everything we can to help and support our students.
