Teacher Assessed Grades for Summer 2021
All Year 11 students have recently been issued a predicted grade report (April 2021) which is based on evidence and an expectation of how they might continue to perform in school over the remainder of the term.
Teachers will determine final grades based on evidence which is appropriate with the standard at which a student is performing, i.e. demonstrated knowledge and understanding and skills across the content of the course being been taught.
Teachers will record how the evidence was used to arrive at a fair and objective grade, which is free from bias.
All the evidence used to determine final Teacher Assessed Grades (TAG), and associated documentation, will be retained and made available for the purposes of external quality assurance and appeals for genuine errors.
