GCSE Teacher Assessed Grades


On 4 January 2021, the Government announced that it was no longer fair for the Summer 2021 examination series for GCSE, A/AS Level, Project Qualifications and Advanced Extension Award in maths to go ahead due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

Instead exam boards have asked exam centres, including Bishop Perowne, to generate teacher assessed grades (TAGs) for their students for each subject. These TAGs are based on a range of evidence completed as part of the course, including evidence produced in more recent months, which demonstrates the student’s performance on the subject content they were taught.

Below we have provided a number of documents relating to our implementation of the TAGS, including our policy, communications given to students and parents/carers, and the JCQ and Ofqual guidance for parents/carers and students. All of these documents are also available under our Policies page.
