Parental Guide to Assessment

DSC 6118Due to changes requested by the Department for Education, pupils will now receive a numbered grade for their GCSE from 9-1, with a grade 9 being the highest award possible; an equivalent of an A** grade.

The Government have produced a useful factsheet detailing how and why these changes are taking place. This factsheet can be downloaded here.

We have recently changed our Assessment Procedures and will be running further information sessions for parents/carers in the New Year.

Attached is a brief guide to Assessment and further information, including the subject grade descriptors, will be available in early January 2018. We will be asking for feedback regularly to ensure this is clear and effective for parents/carers.

If you have any questions in the meantime, please do not hesitate to contact Miss Argyrakis (Assistant Headteacher) on [email protected] or Miss Hillman on [email protected].
