Awarding GCSE grades in 2021

Awarding GCSE grades this Summer, 2021 

Schools are required to have a policy which sets out how they intend to award GCSE grades to their students this summer.  Our policy details our holistic plan for gathering the evidence to determine grades, how assessments and work will be standardised, marked and moderated to ensure accuracy, including objectivity and external quality assurance. 

The policy also details how students and/or parents can apply for special consideration due to any mitigating circumstances adversely affecting a student’s academic performance.  Please note that the deadline for submission of any applications for special consideration is 4pm Wednesday 19th May. 

An Assessment Record for each subject will demonstrate which pieces of evidence have been taken into account for students.  Once finalised, these will be published on this page on our website.
