The TAGs process is in place to ensure that all pupils receive a fair grade reflective of their achievement overall within each subject. It is vital to ensure that no pupil is disadvantaged by the disruption caused by the global pandemic. Finally, and most importantly, the process must ensure that we are supporting all pupils to move on to the next step in their education journey as smoothly as possible; to start their life beyond Cams Hill School with confidence and a high quality secondary school experience behind them.

What is a TAG?

As you are aware, the 2021 Summer Exams Series has been cancelled.  These exams have been replaced by TAGs with all schools using the best available evidence that they have gathered/will gather for each and every pupil to show their ability.  To determine the TAG, your child’s teachers, the departments they work in and the Senior Leadership Team will look at a range of evidence (historic and current) such as mock exams, in class assessments and controlled assessments (in relevant subjects).

In-Class Assessments (ICAs)

To contribute to the evidence bank, there will also be a series of In-Class Assessments (ICAs) scheduled in all subjects between Wednesday 21 April and Wednesday 19 May 2021.  All assessments carried out will be focussed on the curriculum content that your child has covered and pupils will be informed of topics to be tested prior to the ICAs to support their revision.  Dates of all ICAs will be shared with you via the school website in due course.  We hope to finalise these prior to the Easter holiday.  Pupils eligible for Access Arrangements will be fully supported for ICAs as required.

Subjects with a Controlled Assessment Element

In subjects with a large controlled assessment element, this assessment will be used to form all or part of your child’s grade.  Again, any time missed will not count against pupils and in the time remaining in school, their teacher will support all pupils in class to complete areas they need to complete.
