This plan examines potential risks and issues that could cause disruption to the management and administration of the exam process at Stratton Upper School. By outlining actions/procedures to be invoked in case of disruption it is intended to mitigate the impact these disruptions have on our exam process.
Alongside internal processes, this plan is informed by scenarios contained in the Exam system contingency plan: England, Wales and Northern Ireland which provides guidance in the publication What schools and colleges and other centres should do if exams or other assessments are seriously disrupted
This plan also confirms Stratton Upper School is compliant with the JCQ general regulation (section 5.3, General Regulations for Approved Centres 2019-2020) that the centre has in place a written examination contingency plan which covers all aspects of examination administration. They will allow members of the senior leadership team to act immediately in the event of an emergency or staff absence.
