Rules & Policies
The Joint Council for Qualifications (JCQ) documents listed below are ESSENTIAL READING for all students scheduled to take external examinations (GCSE/FSMQ and the like).
The notices informs of what is permitted/not permitted in the examination room, what behavior is expected and what to do if help is required during an examination.
Calthorpe Park staff and invigilators do not set the rules, but they are responsible to the Joint Council for Qualifications (JCQ) for enforcing them. Strict penalties are applied to anyone breaking them. This could mean disqualification from a paper, an examination, or even a whole examination series. Please read them carefully and if anything is unclear, ask a member of staff or the exams office.
Also available are the notices regarding Non-Examined Assessments and Controlled Assessments. Students undertaking these assessments should read these notices carefully and share them with parents/guardians. Again, if anything is unclear, please ask before starting the assessment.
Our exam & controlled assessment policy is also listed below as well as the appeals policy for internal and external assessments.
