2021 GCSE Results
Dear Parents, Carers and Year 11 pupils,
The GCSE grades have now been submitted to the exam boards and pupils will receive their results on the 12th August via their school email. If you have not already checked that you can access your emails please do so now, a help sheet below.
The school will be open on Thursday 12th August from 10.00am until 12.00pm and a number of staff, including a careers advisor, will be available on site to provide support and guidance to pupils on securing places at sixth form and further education colleges.
Once you have received your results, please do complete the form letting us know of your planned post-sixteen destination. The form can be found here:
As you are aware the grades this year have been calculated using a range of evidence and data, including mock results and non-exam assessments.
The school has followed the guidance of the Joint Council for Qualifications (JCQ ) in assigning GCSE grades and our centre policy describes the evidence used for the Teacher Assessed Grades (TAG). This policy can be found on the school website. JCQ has confirmed that our centre policy meets their requirements and following an inspection it has also been confirmed that the school has all the necessary exam access-arrangements in place. The school grades have been quality assured by the exam boards who have looked at the evidence for a number of pupils over a range of subjects.
What to do if you are not happy with your exam grades on August the 12th.
If pupils do not feel their calculated grade reflects their performance, they will have the opportunity to sit exams in one or more subject in the autumn term. They also have the opportunity to appeal against the grade they have been awarded. Details of this year’s appeals process are described below.
If you believe a mistake has been made in the school producing your assessed grade you have the right to appeal. The most recent advice from OFQUAL on appeals is available on the school website, along with the necessary forms for appeals. This will be updated if the guidance changes.
The first part of the appeals process is to request a centre review. You will need to complete stage 1 of the JCQ appeal form and return it to the school office firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday September 3rd.
We hope that you are happy with your results and feel they reflect the level of hard work you have put in over your years at Broomfield School. We wish you every success for the future.
