GCSE Results Day Information 20th August 2020
Reminder of our guidance for Results Day – Thursday 20th August 2020
Students can come onto the school site from 10am on 20th August.
Please do not arrive before this. Students will enter straight into the Millennium Hall through the door accessed via the carpark (South Farm Road). To ensure we adhere to Government and Public Health England guidance students must maintain 2 metre social distance at all times. Results will then be collected from Community tables (Tarring, Broadwater, Heene and Salvington), set up in the Millennium Hall. A queuing system will be in place to ensure social distancing. You will then follow a one way system into the Sports Hall where we will provide you with refreshments and a space to interact with your peers and teachers. There will be a one way system in place to exit the building, collecting year books and hoodies on the way out.
To ensure our results day is managed in a safe way please:
1. ensure that those who have coronavirus (COVID-19) symptoms, or who have someone in their household who does, do not attend school
2. ensure those students and parents/carers who might be self-isolating following the return from an overseas trip must not attend school
3. remind your son/daughter to use hand sanitiser/ wash hands upon entering the school site
4. ensure good respiratory hygiene by promoting the ‘catch it, bin it, kill it’ approach
5. students and parents should also follow coronavirus (COVID-19): safer travel guidance for passengers when planning their travel to school, and be encouraged to walk or cycle where possible.
Students should not socialise with each other in large groups outside school either before or after the event.
If parents/carers wish to accompany your son/daughter to collect their results, you must not gather at entrance gates or doors (and neither should their child), or enter the site.
Further resources for students receiving their GCSE, AS and A level qualifications this summer
Ofqual has published resources for students receiving their qualifications this summer. These resources include a student guide to post-16 qualification results that provides students with additional information to help them understand how their results have been awarded, what to expect on results day, and the options available to them if they are unhappy with their result.
Ofqual has also published a student guide to appeals and malpractice or maladministration complaints in summer 2020. This information will help students understand if they have a reason to make an appeal or a complaint about malpractice or maladministration, including concerns about bias or discrimination.
