Information about Results Day 20 August 2020 for Y11 Students, Parents & Carers

Below is a copy of the email that has been sent to all Y11 students, detailing information about Results Day 20 August 2020.

Dear Year 11 Student,

We hope you are well and have managed to have a great summer under the current circumstances.

I am writing to you to confirm the details about how your GCSE and vocational qualification results will be released this year.

Your results will be emailed to your school email account at the earliest time we are allowed, which is 8:00am Thursday 20 August. A paper copy of your results will also be posted to your home address. Due to the exceptional circumstances this year, the school site will not be open to students or staff, so please do not come in to school.

If for any reason you do not receive your results email at 8:00am on Thursday, please email me directly from your school email address so this can be checked.

As you are aware, due to the cancellation of the summer exams this year, the school submitted centre assessment grades as part of a national process overseen by the DfE and Ofqual. More information about the process can be found here: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/awarding-qualifications-in-summer-2020

You are likely to have seen the current media coverage following the release of A level results last week (which used a similar system to that being used for GCSEs). Our thoughts are with you as this has undoubtedly increased your anxiety in what has already been a very difficult year for all of you.

Throughout the process, we have maintained our core principle that our students would not be disadvantaged by the cancellation of the exams. A huge amount of care went into the production of the centre assessed grades to accurately predict final grades had the exams not been cancelled. With the school’s track record of excellent exam outcomes, we remain hopeful that you will receive the results that you deserve.

It would be useful at this stage to familiarise yourself with the current Ofqual guidance about what to do if you have concerns or questions about your grades: https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/909525/Information_for_students_about_malpractice_20200814_1218_-_access.pdf

We are following the situation closely and included in your results email on Thursday morning will be the most up to date advice and guidance about what you can do if you do have any concerns about the results you have received. This will include a system for contacting the Leadership Team directly should you wish to.

Best wishes

Richard Clarke

Deputy Headteacher

Year 11 Family Learning

Our next Family Learning Session will be an important one – the last one for Year 11 students before the exam season.

This will take place on Tuesday 17 March from 6.00pm.

We encourage attendance for all Year 11 students with their parents/carers, as this evening will give key revision points for over the Easter break and give families an insight as to what the expectations will be during the exam season.

Year 10 Family Learning

Year 10 Family Learning/Curriculum Evening

We would like to invite you to The Roseland Academy for our Family Learning Session/Curriculum Evening tailored specifically for Year 10 students and their families.
The evening will explore useful revision techniques with the opportunity to explore the curriculum that students will study in Year 10 and how best to make the most of the year in preparation for GCSEs.
It will take place on Tuesday 11 February 2020, from 6.00pm and end at approximately 8.00pm.
As your child has already embarked on their GCSE years at The Roseland Academy, we would like to work together even more closely so that every student achieves their best possible results with their qualifications.
Our Family Learning approach has been highly successful in the last academic year, as the exchange of information and sharing specific ideas about how to support a child in their education between home and school is extremely important to us at The Roseland.
We hosted an event similar to this last year and it proved that attending this evening is of paramount importance, and is simply unmissable for you and your son/daughter.
Please also like or follow our school Facebook page as all the subsequent Family Learning information will be advertised there.

We look forward to seeing you together with your son/daughter.
