Centre Determined Grades – Letter to Parents / Carers and Pupils

Dear Parent/Carer and Pupil,

Please find attached important information about the process of awarding Centre-Determined Grades at Penyrheol Comprehensive School for this summer’s GCSE/BTEC qualifications. Please read this letter carefully with your son/daughter and contact the school if there is anything that you are unclear about or want further information on. Pupils will be given more information in school on a subject-by-subject basis about the assessment evidence that will be used to determine their grades and when those assessments will take place. We intend for this to be a fair and valid process so that every pupil is awarded an appropriate grade in every subject, taking into account the very challenging circumstances they (and their teachers) have faced over the last year.
