Further update on 20720 exams - the latest news from Ofqual
At the time of writing this update nothing had been received from Ofqual regarding more detailed information about the process and timetable which will apply this summer. We are now hearing that this may possibly not be published until after Easter. Whenever we do receive the details we will forward it to you immediately.
Planned Trips for the Autumn Term
I have had a small number of enquiries regarding trips planned for the Autumn Term and when we might decide on whether they will take place. I do think the sensible position is to hold on any such decision at the moment. These activities are a very long way off and I’m hoping that the future will be clearer in the weeks after the Easter break. We are closely monitoring the situation and will update you as more information comes to light but for now we are continuing with planning/ payments.
Easter Holiday provision for children of Key Workers and Vulnerable Students
I can now confirm that our on-site provision will be open over the Easter holidays (closed on Good Friday and Bank Holiday Monday). I would like to acknowledge the fantastic response from staff in volunteering to run this provision during this period.
Again, my thanks for your support.
