Students keep asking us when their club is running/ what day it is on and most of the time I have forgotten too... The department and I have created a board with all the clubs running from term 1 to make it easier to remember/ more visual for them ⚽️🎾🏀 https://t.co/Pu9INC5tQM

Entry to the Sixth Form - GCSE Results Day 2020

Confirmed Arrangements for Valley Park School students in Year 11 and Year 12 and 13 students collecting GCSE results. 

A letter has been sent to all students, parents and carers on 18 August to confirm arrangements for GCSE Results Day, 

Confirmed Arrangements for External Students 

Following our receipt of the recently updated Government guidance for schools, including an announcement on Monday 17 August, we are now in a position to confirm arrangements for our Year 11 Results Day on Thursday 20 August. 

External students should attend school to enrol in the Sixth Form between 1.30pm and 2.30pm on Thursday 20 August. On this day you must bring with you:

  • One form of ID (e.g. Birth Certificate or Passport);
  • Your statement of results on your school’s headed paper;
  • A clear understanding of your requested subject choices, as well as an awareness of possible “back up” options.

Prior to attending site, students must complete the following by 12.30pm on Thursday 20 August:

  • Complete our electronic admission form, which is linked below:

Part 1 - https://forms.office.com/Pages/ResponsePage.aspx?id=cIhBXmFfe0qsFBuGrGjvqHHGQTqtoSxOlMlLUUK621VURDZGOEZKTFkyRkI4TFlUTUtOWVVQWU8zTC4u

Part 2 - https://forms.office.com/Pages/ResponsePage.aspx?id=cIhBXmFfe0qsFBuGrGjvqHHGQTqtoSxOlMlLUUK621VUM0c1SVhEQlNURVQxVlJERlFNVDZVUFgyTy4u

  • Send a copy (photographs are acceptable) of your results on your school’s headed paper and ID to sixthform@valleypark.viat.org.uk, clearly stating your name in the email.

If the above information is not received by 12.30pm on 20 August, we will not be able to consider your application on the day, and will review it once the school reopens in September.

Unfortunately, due to understandable demand from students to come into school, we are unable to admit all parents and carers onto the site. Therefore, students must meet with staff alone to avoid congestion in high demand areas. We will provide an outside space for students to discuss options with their parents and carers where needed. To comply with the Track and Trace system, we will need to take full details of anyone attending. Please can you ensure that you bring a charged, data-enabled mobile device with you for this purpose. 

For anyone planning to attend the site, I have included an excerpt from Government guidance below:

  • Ensure that those who have coronavirus (COVID-19) symptoms, or who have someone in their household who does, do not attend the school site;
  • Ensure all visitors on site clean hands more often than usual, making use of hand sanitiser stations where appropriate;
  • Ensure good respiratory hygiene by the ‘catch it, bin it, kill it’ approach;
  • Consider walking or cycling to school to reduce demand on public transport at peak times.

To help provide answers to some frequently asked questions, we have a webpage which we will update throughout the coming days which you can find below. Please do let us know if there is anything we can add!
https://www.valleypark.viat.org.uk/3493/examination-results-key-information-for-year-11-and-year-13-families

We have reviewed the school spaces and structures for September 2020 in light of COVID-19 and the need for social distancing. This may have an impact on the number of spaces available per course. We advise that applicants to the Sixth Form contact us promptly to confirm their provisional place on 20 August as places will not be held and we are not able to be as flexible as we would usually hope to be. 

If you have any questions, please contact Mr Fuller via sixthform@valleypark.viat.org.uk

Yours sincerely

Mr Fuller
Deputy Headteacher
