An update about qualification assessments - Friday 26 February 2021
The government has announced that this summer, GCSEs, BTECs and other technical qualifications will be based on teacher-assessed grades. Results will be published on Tuesday 10 August 2021.
To ensure you get the best grade possible, it is extremely important that you continue to attend all timetabled sessions and complete all of your assignments.
If you need to take a qualification in Functional Skills (for example, in order to complete your apprenticeship), then you should still be able to take your assessment, in line with public health measures. There may also be alternative arrangements for you if this is not possible. Teacher-assessed grades will be used to decide your Functional Skills qualification where you cannot access an in-person or remote assessment.
If you would like any further information about how GCSEs, Functional Skills or technical qualifications will be assessed this summer, please speak to your teacher.
We are still working through the detail of how we will safely return to face-to-face teaching during March. We will write to you confirming our arrangements within the next few days.
