Please find below a link to some information that Ofqual (The Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation) have put together.

Student guide to post-16 qualifications results – Summer 2020

The document outlines special arrangements for this summer to make sure that the vast majority of students will receive calculated grades, so they can progress to further study or employment as expected. The grades you receive this year will carry the same value as any other year, so you can compete on a level playing field with students from previous and future years. This guide should help you understand how results have been awarded this year and where to find more information.

YEAR 13 RESULTS DAY

Dear Year 13,

It was lovely speaking with so many of you last week when you picked-up your results. I am just so sorry that you didn’t get to finish properly. You worked incredibly hard and were such a genuinely wonderful year group. Mr Crabtree and I are exploring some way of celebrating with you all and when we finally have a viable plan we will let you know.

I know many of you have been thinking about your upcoming results and how we will run the day. Therefore, I have set out below a detailed overview of how we will organise the Results Day and emailed out a letter to your parents too.

Results Day Logistics

 

Examination results will be available from 8am on Thursday 13 August in the Sports Hall. We have selected the Sports Hall rather than the Sixth Form Common Room as it is more than three times the size and will allow for better social distancing.

 

Please find below the logistics of the day:

  • You should come to the Sports Hall via the entrance in the car park by the tennis courts. Please don’t use the P-Block entrance at the front of school.
  • You will be directed to use the available hand sanitiser before picking up your results.
  • You will go to one of six staffed tables which will be divided-up according to students’ surnames.
  • You should collect their envelope and immediately leave the Sports Hall and enter the quad outside the Common Room where you can open your envelopes and talk with your friends.
  • If you who require any support or help you can go to the library where members of the Sixth Form Team will be available.
  • If you are showing any symptoms of Coronavirus then you must not come into school to collect your results. Email the school on the exams email address below and we will email you your results.

 

If you are not available to collect your results in person then the following options are open to you:

  • You can send an email giving permission for another person to collect your results. Contained within the email must be the name of the person who is collecting the results on your behalf. You must also confirm in the email that the person who is collecting your results has been made aware of the above collection instructions and will arrive at the correct time. The person collecting the results must also be prepared to show photographic identification. Results will not be issued if a person is unable to confirm their identity.
  • You can send an email giving permission for the results to be emailed to you. Contained within this email must be the email address that you wish your results to be sent to (it can be the school email or a separate one). The school will aim to send out results by email as close to 10am as possible. The school will not be responsible for attempting to rectify emails that will not deliver due to incorrect email addresses being given.

All emails detailing specific results day collection requests must be sent to:

exams@huntington-ed.org.uk

 

All emails must be received by Thursday 6 August 2020.

 

Unfortunately Exam Boards do not allow us to:

 

  • Give out results over the phone.
  • Allow anyone else to collect results without your permission, this also applies to parents and guardians.

 

This year the results will be awarded by Centre Assessed Grades. You do not have the facility to appeal centre assessed grades, the rank order or the procedure that schools followed to arrive at these grades. However, you will be able to raise a complaint to the school if you have evidence of bias or that you were discriminated against.

 

The process the school followed will be explained in detail in the envelopes you pick-up on Results Day.

 

As we know things may change locally between now and Thursday 13 August and if that requires a change in our approach to the day then we will email and post new instructions on the website.

Support from the Sixth Form Team

Mr Crabtree has sent weekly updates and information on post-18 options so please refer to these emails so you are fully prepared for the day. In particular, if you are applying to university then you should make sure that you have read through the information he sent about Clearing and Adjustment.

 

From 8.15am until 4pm on Results Day the Sixth Form Team will be available to and offer any support necessary with post-18 options. We will also be available on Friday 14 August and Thursday 20 August. You are free to email any questions too and we will do our upmost to answer them.

 

Lastly, I would like to celebrate students’ achievements and their destinations. This will be via the Evening Press and social media, including our website. If you haven’t already responded to Mr Crabtree’s email request for permissions please reply to him as soon as possible so we can act accordingly.

I look forward to seeing you on Thursday 13 August to celebrate your success. Enjoy the rest of the summer and take care.

 

Yours sincerely,

Mr C Hardwell
