Ofqual, the exams regulator, is seeking student and parent input into proposed awarding arrangements for GCSE, A Levels and vocational and technical.qualifications.
ESC will be reviewing this consultation and responding in the next week and we will share that response in future newsletters.
The approach will use teacher assessments and use a range of evidence to support these judgements.
The announcement also reiterates the need for students to carry on with their learning for the remainder of the academic year as the knowledge, skills and behaviours will stand them in good stead for the next part of their lives.
Please do continue to support your young person to maintain their learning with us, as there may be short assessments students need to complete as part of the grading process.
