BECKFOOT UPPER HEATON GSCE GRADING POLICY - FOR 2021 ONLY
Please see our policy for how we will award grades this summer.
Please be aware that this is a draft policy as we have uploaded it to the JCQ website for approval. If you have any questions or queries, please get in contact with us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
|Friday 28th May 2021||Year 11 last day in school. To include a farewell celebration.|
|Friday 18th June 2021||Grades will be sent off to the exam boards on this day.|
|Thursday 12th August 2021||GCSE Results Day in school - further details to follow.|
Students should collect their results in person, we will accommodate requests for alternative arrangements as outlined below, but these are ONLY in extreme circumstances and should be arranged before leaving and at the very latest 25th June 2021.
- Stamped self-addressed envelope for results to be posted (this should ideally be A4 sized).
- Written authorisation, from the student, for someone else (including parents) to collect their results on the day. This cannot be another student in the year group.
Urgent review of marking can be arranged on GCSE Results Day. After that only normal reviews can be requested (until 20th September). After that date no further reviews are possible.
Important Information - Publication of Results
Students results are published by various newspapers. If you do not want your results to appear in any newspaper, then you will need to opt out of this. You can do so by emailing your request to email@example.com.
GCSE Certificates are available for collection from School Reception from the week commencing 6th December 2021. Specific collection dates will be advised on the school website. Please check with School Reception first, to make sure they have arrived from the Exam Boards. Alternatively, if school leavers have a sibling still attending school, the certificates can be collected on their behalf, as long as a letter of authorisation is provided with a copy of a valid ID.
Exam certificates are an important document and should be kept somewhere safe. If you misplace or lose your certificates you can only get replacements through the Examining Boards who can charge up to £43 per certificate (as at March 2020).
Please note that a requirement of the Examining Boards is that all certificates be returned to them or destroyed, if not collected within 12 months of issue. We therefore suggest that certificates are collected no later than April of the following year of issue.
