Latest school updates for 2021

Teacher Assessed Grades

Dear Parents and Carers,

You may be aware that shortly following the announcement in January that ‘exams will not go ahead as normal’ this year, Gavin Williamson advised schools that instead a system of ‘Teacher Assessed Grades’ (TAGs) will be used.

TAGs are different from last year’s CAGs in that grades submitted by teachers this year: 

  • will not be ranked,
  • must be backed by a solid body of evidence, and
  • will be subject to a comprehensive set of controls and checks.

Consequently, JCQ published a template ‘Centre Policy for determining teacher assessed grades in Summer 2021’ which schools were to adapt to make clear their processes for arriving at TAGs and submit to JCQ by Friday 30th April.

You will find our TAG Policy below which you may refer to should you wish to seek clarification on any part of the School's TAG process.

Kind regards

Covid Testing

Dear Parents and Carers,

Please can you remind your child to continue with twice weekly testing, with each test separated by at least 3 days; it is a good idea to stick to the routine of Wednesday and Sunday evenings. 

Results should be uploaded onto the two following platforms:
If a positive result is returned on the home test then a PCR test should be arranged via the NHS and your child should remain at home until the result of that test is received. If this result is negative your child can return to School. If it is positive they should remain at home and the household should follow the government guidance on isolation. Please notify us of any positive results by contacting the school office on 020 7387 3856 or email office@mariafidelis.camden.sch.uk
 
Kind regards

Helen Gill
