COVID 19 – End of Term Letter & OFQUAL Announcement

April 3, 2020

End of Term Letter

Firstly, we want to start by thanking all parents and carers for the support you have offered the Academy during these difficult times, when you yourselves are undoubtedly trying to balance working from home; being a parent and trying to support your child’s education. Your continued messages of support have been greatly appreciated by both teachers and leaders in the Academy. And as time moves on, we will continue to do our very best to support you and your children to work and learn from home…


Ofqual Update on Examinations – Awarding of GCSE and A Level Grades

I hope this letter finds you and your loved ones safe and well at what continues to be a very challenging time. As you
may be aware Ofqual and the Department for Education have released further information today in relation to how
GCSEs and A Level grades will be awarded in the summer.

Outlined later in this communication is the information we have received to date, set out in a ‘question and answer’
format. I hope this format best supports your understanding of the process that will now take place both in the
Academy and at a national level. I also hope what is set out below provides you with some greater clarity and acts to
allay any fears or concerns you have with the awarding of qualifications this summer. As we receive any further updates
from Ofqual, exam boards or the Department for Education, we will continue to keep you informed and updated.

The guidance itself can be found at:

Once again thank you for your on-going support during these uncertain times. Please rest assured that we will continue
to do our very best to ensure that your children are not placed at a disadvantage as a result of the challenging situation
that we find ourselves currently facing.
