Some students may be entitled to exam concessions – this is where a student may be able to access support during internal academy exams and formal GCSEs.
To access this support the student will be tested by the SENCo using approved tests which identify if the child may have a specific need in an exam.
The results of these tests will then inform whether additional support can be applied for. If a student scores low enough for the academy to apply for concessions an application to the exam board will take place at which point they will identify what concessions, if any the student may be entitled to.
If a student is entitled to concessions, the Academy will provide the support required and provision will be made away from the main exam hall.
Any and all entitlements will be shared with the student and parent.
