Awarding of Exam Results

 

We understand the unprecedented times we are currently facing are difficult for us all, and we know that they are particularly difficult for Y11 and Y13 due to the government's decision regarding the cancellation of exams in May and June.

 

As you will probably all now know, today the government has provided some further information as to how your GCSE, AS or A level grades will be awarded. The government press release states: “The exam boards will be asking teachers, who know their students well, to submit their judgement about the grade that they believe the student would have received if exams had gone ahead. Teachers will take into account a range of evidence and data including performance on mock exams and non-exam assessment”.

 

They go on to say that all teachers across the country will be provided with clear guidance on how to do this fairly and robustly. At this current time, the guidance has not been issued to schools, so can I ask you to be patient and not to contact your teaching staff as they do not have any further information.

 

Whilst we truly appreciate the uncertainty this causes, we want to assure you that as soon as further information is shared with us we will communicate it to you.

 

A letter sent to parents/carers about the exam results process can be downloaded here.

Sixth Form Admission

 

All students who applied for Chellaston Sixth Form will be made a conditional offer, subject to meeting the minimum requirements as outlined in the Sixth Form Admissions Policy. This can be found on our website. A letter will be sent to all applicants confirming this after the Easter holidays. Following receipt of this letter, students should email sixthformadmin@chellaston.derby.sch.uk with their name, date of birth and indicate whether they wish to accept the offer or not by the end of May.

 

We have made the decision to postpone the Sixth Form Bridging day calendared for Thursday June 18th. Appropriate transition will be planned for on our return so that all students will be ready to begin their KS5 studies effectively.

 

In the meantime, keep a close eye on your emails as subject teams will be providing students with reading lists and tasks that should be undertaken in order to prepare you for your Key Stage 5 journey. All work and reading should be completed before we return.
