Teacher Assessed Grades 2021
Summer 2021 Grades
Due to the cancellation of the summer examinations, schools were asked to determine grades for all students. At Copthall we have taken our responsibility for awarding grades very seriously, carefully following a rigorous and robust process to assign grades for each subject, moderate these grades and quality assure the evidence that sit behind these grades. We are confident that every grade awarded is a true reflection of how our students are performing.
The documents below have been shared directly with our Year 11 and 13 students and their families. These outline the school’s approach to awarding the Summer 2021 grades along with sharing the national approach for quality assuring the process.
Should any student be unhappy with the grades they have been awarded, they will be able to follow an appeals process which is outlined in the below guidance from Ofqual.
