How are pupils supported in exams?
- Support for public exams is determined by conditions set out by the exams boards. The process for determining whether your daughter will be eligible for support in her public exams begins in Y9 as all schools must demonstrate to the exam boards a history of need.
- At the beginning of Year 10 the Senco makes the ultimate decision if a pupil is eligible for exam concessions having carried out assessments in both cognition and learning.
- The boards only give concessions if there are scores in standardised assessments of 84 and below.
