Dear parents/guardians of year 11
The GCSE examination timetables have been issued to students this week, please keep these in a safe place to enable you to support your child through these examinations.
Whilst the timetables have now been finalised the qualification regulators, JCQ (Joint Council for Qualifications) and government departments responsible for education have prepared and agreed information for schools in the event of examinations being seriously disrupted. This jointly agreed information will ensure consistency of response in the event of major disruption to the examination system affecting a number of different candidates and examination centres.
JCQ has designated Wednesday 26 June 2019 as a 'contingency day' for examinations.
This means that students should be available up until 27 June 2019, in case the contingency day has to be used.
Please bear this in mind when booking any holidays this summer.
