External Professional Testing and Examinations: Access Arrangements
‘Access Arrangements’ are reasonable adjustments made to the conditions under which a disabled candidate sits exams. The Equality Act (2010) defines a disability as “a physical or mental impairment which causes substantial, long-term adverse effect on normal day to day activities”.
At Key Stage 3, Access Arrangements are not regularly granted to St. Marylebone students in order that baseline performance can be accurately assessed. In this way, the most effective intervention can be implemented. In exceptional individual circumstances access arrangements may be considered.
For external exams in KS4, any applications will be made in line with the current Joint Council of Qualifications Guidelines. For more detail please contact our SENCo.
