Schools news

  • The Government has said announced that all learners are expected back at school in September. In secondary schools, whole year groups may be placed in 'bubbles' to avoid too much contact may be an option.
  • Schools are likely to be staggering the start and end of school days when schools return in September. This would probably mean different year groups coming at different times. They will also be encouraging learners to walk or cycle to and from school. This is being done to reduce numbers of people on buses and trains at busy times of day.

Exams and grades

A letter to students in Year 11, 12 and 13 about what's happening with grades this summenr. Briefly it says:

  • Grades will be decided by teachers telling exam boards what they think and the exam boards comparing that with what other schools are saying about their students.
  • Teachers can’t tell you the grades they think you should get.
  • You’ll get the results no later than the usual August dates and maybe earlier.
  • Ofqual are working with exam boards to set up Autumn exams for those who want to take them.

There’s more here.

College news

  • The government has told colleges and training providers to plan for a full programme of study and training for learners of all ages from their normal term start date in September 2020.
  • Advice has been given to the providers about issues like keeping buildings clean, having groups of learners in bubbles and when wearing PPE might be necessary.
  • The providers have been told they should decide on the best mix of face to face and remote learning. They are also told to make sure anyone having to learn from home has enough support.
