to collect them on their behalf, your son/daughter will need to email exams@littleheath.org.uk.
Emailed results will be sent on Thursday but we cannot confirm when this will happen.
All uncollected results will be posted at the end of the day.

Summer 2021 Appeals Information

What do I do if I’m not happy with my / my child’s grade?

All students have the opportunity to appeal their grade if they meet the eligibility criteria. The information regarding the Appeals process can be found in the letters below.

It is important to note that an appeal may result in a grade being lowered, staying the same, or going up. If a student puts in an appeal and their grade is lowered, they will receive the lower mark. When placing an appeal, the student will have to sign a declaration saying that they accept the fact their grade may go down and they may get a lower grade than their original TAG.

There is also the option to re-sit GCSEs, A levels and some AS levels in the autumn, which may be preferable to some students. The design, content and assessment of these papers will be the same as in a normal year.

Summer 2021 Grading Information

Summer 2021 examinations update

As a result of the disruption to the education of students caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, the government considers that exams cannot be held in summer 2021 in a way which is, and which is perceived to be, fair.

In reaching this decision the government acknowledged that many schools are providing high-quality remote learning but there will be an impact on the coverage of the curriculum and students’ exam preparation. This impact will vary between regions, schools within a region and students.

On 15 January Ofqual and the Department for Education (DfE) published a joint consultation seeking views on how grades should instead be awarded. The consultation closed on 29 January. A full summary and analysis of the responses has been published Consultation Results Summer 2021. This document reflects Ofqual’s decisions following the consultation and in light of the Secretary of State’s direction to us, as the regulator of qualifications, examinations and assessments in England.

Below is an infographic to show you an overview of the process.

Certificates

If you are an ex Y11 or Y13 student (2019-20), looking to collect your exam certificates from summer 2020, please ensure you email exams@littleheath.org.uk 24hrs before you would like to collect so we can have them ready for you.

Students who sat their examinations in summer 2016 will need to collect their certificates by 31 December 2021. After this time they will need to contact the exam boards to request copies of certificates, which will cost £50.50 per certificate. Please email exams@littleheath.org.uk to arrange a time to collect them from the Exams Office.

It is very important to collect your certificates and look after them carefully, as you will need them in the future and replacements are very expensive and difficult to obtain. Little Heath School is not obliged to retain certificates after a year and unclaimed certificates may be destroyed or returned to the exam board.
