Important Access Arrangement updates for Summer 2024

Student sitting exams with alternative rooming arrangements

The JCQ have highlighted that nervousness, low level anxiety or being worried about examinations is not sufficient grounds for separate invigilation within the centre. Where a candidate panics on the day of an examination or becomes anxious, then we can support them by offering them to be seated where they feel most comfortable within the main examination venue ie. seated at the side, front, back or have arranged to come in 5 minutes early to settle before the start of the examination.

Information for extra time students

If your child has previously been identified as being entitled to have extra time in their examinations and assessments. The examinations governing body, the JCQ (Joint Council for Qualifications), have tightened the regulations, and for a student to continue to be entitled to extra time this must be their normal way of working.  If this applies to your child please can you ensure that your child understands that they will need to take all of their extra time in their mock and in class assessments. 

If your child does not use their extra time, there is a possibility we may need to withdraw this access arrangement for their GCSE’s.
