Academy21: Covid-19 & Year 11 Assessments
I wrote to you last week to highlight that our provision will continue on uninterrupted. I also at that time mentioned that we would communicate further this week with our response and approach for your year 11 pupils currently enrolled with us and in light of the cancellation of all examinations this Summer.
Following the announcement on government plans with regard to Year 11 final exams, Academy 21 stand ready to support schools and clients with estimated grades based on pupil performance while attending A21. To ensure fairness, this data will be based on past performance and a range of assessment tasks to be carried out between 23rd March and the 22nd May 2020.
Estimated grades, based on the above, will be supplied to clients in the necessary time frames to meet exam board requirements, while taking into account the time needed by centres to compare our data with their own existing data. Should exam boards issue further guidance about estimated grades, we will of course adhere to it.
Clients needing estimated grades in advance of our June release can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org before the upcoming Easter holidays to discuss requirements. These enquiries will be dealt with between 20th April and the end of May.
