Dear Parents, Carers & Students,
I hope that this letter finds you and your family safe and well. It was so lovely to see so many of you attend our Year 13 leavers’ event on Friday, 28th May. We are now planning for your results’ days. I have again shared below links to the OFQUAL & IB processes for awarding the Teacher Assessed Grades for this year, along with the academy Teacher Assessed Grades policy.
We really would like to be able to give you your results in person, and as such have decided to open to invite students in, but with provisions in place to ensure that we allow social distancing and carefully follow government guidelines. You can also choose to have your results posted, if you wish, but you will not be able to attend the site if you choose to do so. You may also have someone collect them on your behalf, but we will need a letter f beforehand, giving permission and naming the person that you wish to collect the results. Results day normally has two broad goals – to gather and celebrate results, and to provide reassurance, support and guidance for students who require it in relation to results and university applications.
IB Results Day – Tuesday 6th July 2021
This will take place from 10:00am – 11:00am on Tuesday 6th July. The academy will allow students to choose whether they wish to attend to collect their results in school or have them posted, or have someone collect them on their behalf. Year 13 may arrive at the Sports Hall between 10:00am and 11:00am to collect their results.
The Post-16 Team will be available to offer guidance on the results. As confirmed in the IB Overview above, students will have the opportunity to appeal their results. To help you understand the services available to you, the IB has developed a simplified guide on post-results services, which can be downloaded here.
A Level and BTEC Results Day – Tuesday 10th August 2021
Once again, we will allow students to choose whether they wish to attend to collect their results in school or have them posted, or have someone else collect them on their behalf.
To ensure that we have the right numbers on site, we would ask that the first step for all students is to check UCAS Track to see if university places are confirmed. If students need support with a choice, they will be able to see a member of the Post-16 team as soon as they arrive.
In order to remain “COVID-Secure”, we will be staggering the arrival times, and these will stretch from 09:00am -11:00am. The outline of the timetable for this is below, and the actual time to attend will be confirmed this week as soon as we have confirmation of numbers:
08:00am – The Leigh Academy opens.
08:00am – 09:00 am – Students applying to university to check UCAS Track.
09:00am – 11:00am – Year 13 arrival to collect results.
|Time of Arrival||College|
Every student will be offered a face-to-face meeting on the results day to discuss your destination options. Where appropriate one parent will be invited to attend under “COVID-Secure” conditions at that time, which may include wearing a face covering or mask. As confirmed previously, students will have the opportunity to appeal their results. To help you understand the services available to you, we have developed a simplified guide on these post-results services, which can be downloaded here.
As a first step, can I ask you all to complete this form and indicate whether you wish to attend the site or not, on either or both of the results’ days? Please complete this by Friday 2nd July. If we do not hear from you, we will assume that you wish to receive them by post.
OFQUAL & JCQ have confirmed that autumn examinations will be taking place in 2021. We are currently waiting for confirmation of which subjects will be examined. We will update you as soon as we have information about the process.
