Education:

"The Government considers that students who do not feel their calculated grade reflects their ability should be afforded an opportunity to sit an exam at the earliest reasonable opportunity. ”

Please see this consultation on proposed arrangements for an additional GCSE, AS and A level exam series to take place in autumn 2020 and provide your feedback. Ends 8 June 2020 at 23.45

Lockdown and Isolation:

The government has set out its plan to return life to as near normal as we can, for as many people as we can, as quickly and fairly as possible in order to safeguard livelihoods, but in a way that is safe and continues to protect our NHS. The government has published staying safe outside your home for guidance on what the new rules will mean.

At all times, you should continue to observe social distancing guidelines when you are outside your home, including ensuring you are 2 metres away from anyone outside your household.
