Year 6 Information

The government has now published its plans for the arrangements for exams which have been cancelled to fight the spread of the coronavirus. The key elements are:

  1. The Government’s priority is now to ensure affected pupils can move on as planned to secondary school.
  2. Representatives have confirmed that they expect schools to be flexible and do all they can to support pupils and ensure they can progress to the next stage of their education.
  3. Pupils will be awarded a level which fairly reflects the work that they have put in. To ascertain the correct level for a pupil at the end of year 6 teachers will take into account a range of evidence and data including practice papers, class work and non-exam assessments. Given the large amount of evidence the school has gathered to support its predictions; pupils should feel reassured that the hard work they have put will not be in vain. The school will then combine this information to produce a calculated level for each pupil.
  4. Primary schools will ensure that each pupil’s record and relevant information is transferred to their secondary schools to support effective preparation for their arrival next academic year.
