Dear Year 11,
Please read the message below from Mr Rogers, Ms Batteson and Mr Anjum.
We hope that you are well. We would like to let you know everything that we know about the current situation following last night's announcement that GCSE exams won't take place this summer.
Please be aware that we are receiving the same news as you are via media and no decisions have yet been made about the outcomes and grades this year. As soon as we know anything, we will let you know straight away.
Statements from last night were:
“details will be given on Friday on how pupils would be awarded grades in the absence of exams.”
“will award grades in August under a different process and a different system.”
We appreciate lots of you have worked extremely hard since getting your PLR2 trial exam results and during PLR3 trial exams. The ‘difference process’ is not yet known, and as soon as it is, we will work hard to ensure you all are treated fairly and we will communicate this with you as soon as possible.
However, it is not time to stop working.
At this time we understand how anxious you may be feeling - remember the mental health advice you were given in assemblies. Be aware that your teachers are still here for you and you should expect to hear from them via the VLE. As soon as we know anything else about anything, we will let you know. Please regularly check your school email account and VLE messages.
Wishing you the best,
Mr Rogers, Ms Batteson and Mr Anjum
