Fullhurst Community College

Advice on School Closure, Home Learning & Coronavirus

 

Letter from the Principal regarding school closure.

Fullhurst Community College is closed to all students, except those that are vulnerable and / or have parents that are key workers ( as long as they are not self-isolating). If as a parent you think you are a key worker as identified in this government list and feel your child is not able to look after themselves at home they are permitted to attend school.

The government has asked parents to keep their children at home, wherever possible, and asked schools to remain open only for those children who absolutely need to attend.

GCSEs 2020

The government has announced further details on exams and grades regarding GCSEs 2020 :

Further details on exams and grades go to GOV.UK or watch this helpful video by Ofqual.

The exam regulator,  Ofqual and exam boards will work with teachers to provide grades to students whose exams have been cancelled this summer, following our actions to slow the spread of coronavirus.

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.

To produce this, teachers will take into account a range of evidence and data including performance on mock exams and non-exam assessment – clear guidance on how to do this fairly and robustly will be provided to schools and colleges.

The exam boards will then combine this information with other relevant data, including prior attainment (how you did in your SATs), and use this information to produce a calculated grade for each student, which will be a best assessment of the work they have put in.

There will also be an option to sit an exam early in the next academic year for students who wish to.
