Dear Year 13 parents,
Now we have some more instructions and clarity from the exam boards. I wanted to explain what is happening in the coming weeks - as much as I can.
Year 13 will continue on the emergency timetabled lessons for this week. This is very important as teachers will be setting assignments and tasks over the coming days. As the emails I sent you from the exam boards stated, all predicted grades MUST be supported by evidence. To make our predictions as fair and precise as possible, we must gather this evidence up to the last minute. This is going to be a huge task for us over the coming weeks.
After the Easter break the current Year 13 students will not be expected to return or continue online lessons.
We have been instructed by exam boards NOT to inform you of your final predicted grades, so you will have to wait until August I am afraid.
Students: It is VERY IMPORTANT you keep all the work you have completed over this year, mock exams, past papers, exercise books showing your learning etc everything except revision notes. Once the lockdown is over, we will organise a collection so you can bring it all into school. You must also return any text books you have. It is also imperative you check your school emails regularly in case we need to collect more evidence or we have more information for you.
I am due to talk to all Year 13 students later today (Monday) to answer any questions.
Mr Colin Macrae
Head of Wingate School
