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 tell you what you are permitted to take and what you are not permitted to take into the examination room. They tell you how to behave and what to do if you need help 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 there is anything that you do not understand, ask a member of staff or the exams office.
Also available is the notice regarding Controlled Assessments. Students undertaking controlled assessments should read this notice carefully and share it with your parents/guardians. Again, if there is anything that you do not understand, please ask before you submit your work or begin the assessment.
Our exam & controlled assessment policy is also listed below as well as the appeals policy for internal and external assessments.
