New factsheets to help parents and stakeholders understand changes to the GCSEs
June 29, 2017
This week, the Department for Education has released factsheets for employers, FE providers, HE providers and parents concerning the new 1-9 GCSE system. The factsheets outline how the new system matches up with the old A*-C model and the timetable for changes up to 2020.
These factsheets are accessible tools for understanding the new GCSE system. Those governing may want to consider asking the headteacher whether they would be interested in circulating this to parents.
