  • School closure in the event of adverse weather

    Very bad weather and road conditions may make it advisable to close the school earlier than usual to help girls with difficult journeys to get home, although it would be only under very exceptional circumstances that the school would close significantly early. The school will alert parents to this decision by text message and e-mail via the Schoolcomms electronic service that we have in school. Therefore, please would you kindly ensure that we have a current mobile telephone number and e-mail address so that you will receive this information should we need to make contact with you? In the event of a school closure while school is in session, all students will be dismissed from school unless parents record in their daughter’s School Planner their wish for their daughter to remain in the school building until collected. In the event of early closure, it is important that each girl knows exactly what she should do to get home. I should, therefore, be grateful if you would discuss with your daughter, how she is to make her way home in very bad weather, e.g. whether she is to wait to be collected from school, to start the journey home by bus, or to start walking. It is important that you work out together an agreed route that you both know. This detail then needs to be added to your daughter’s School Planner and signed by yourself. If your daughter should arrive home earlier than usual, it would be advisable to make arrangements for her to go to a friend or neighbour if there is no one at home, or to let herself into the house if you are happy for her to do so. In the event of waking up to severe weather conditions, the school will send a text message and e-mail via the Schoolcomms electronic service to all parents to notify of a school closure. We will also post this decision on the school website. The school will endeavour to have announcements made by 7.00am. If there is no definite announcement about the school by 7.00am, it can be assumed that there has not been a closure and school is open as usual.

  • Exam Support | Wolverhampton Girls' High School

    Exam Results Support You will be aware from previous correspondence from Mr Bowdler that the school went through a rigorous process to allocate Centre Assessed Grades for submission to the exam boards. The awarding bodies then carried out their own statistical review before arriving at the grades you have been awarded. Further details about this process are available by clicking here Ofqual state that students: ​ can ask their school or college to check whether it made an administrative error when submitting their centre assessment grade or position in the rank order and if it agrees it did, to submit an appeal to the exam board. ​ There is a form available to complete and submit by 19th August if you believe that this is applicable to you. ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ Following the decision by the government to use the higher of the Centre Assessed Grades and the awarded grade from the Ofqual algorithm clarification has now been issued as to the options for students who are unhappy with their results. You can ask your school or college to check whether it made an administrative error when submitting information to the exam board. Administrative errors might include, for example, mixing up 2 students with similar names, or accidentally copying across the wrong data, but do not relate to the professional judgements of centres in assigning CAGs. If your school or college finds it made a mistake in the information it provided it can ask the exam board to correct it. Your school or college can appeal to the exam board on your behalf if it believes the exam board made a mistake when it communicated your grades. You cannot challenge your school or college under the appeals process on the centre assessment grades it submitted or your rank order positions. Any appeal would have to be undertaken by someone better placed than your teachers to judge your likely grade if exams had taken place. In the unique circumstances of this summer, we do not believe there is such a person. You cannot appeal because your mock result was higher than the grade you were awarded. Your mock grade will have been taken into account in determining your centre assessment grade. All appeals must be made by the school or college. https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/910603/6672_-_What_to_do_if_you_have_concerns_or_questions_about_your_grades.pdf ​ We sincerely hope that you have what you need for your next steps and feel happy with the allocated results but hope that where this is not the case the above information is helpful to you. We encourage you to speak with the staff in school today to support you. Thank you for all of your contributions to our school, please do stay in touch. On behalf of everyone here at Girls’ High, we wish you all the very best for the future. Appeal 2020 Form
