A-level results day 2020
Students across Camden will receive their A-level results tomorrow (13 August). Cllr Angela Mason, Cabinet Member for Best Start for Children and Families, congratulates the borough’s young people and praises schools for their ongoing commitment and hard work during the pandemic.
Students across the borough are going to receive their A-level results, BTEC and other vocational qualifications tomorrow and I wanted to take this opportunity to recognise the hard work and commitment from all our young people and their teachers during challenging times.
This was undoubtedly a difficult and uncertain period for our young people, with many worried about being away from teachers, peers, and not being able to sit the exams they have been working hard towards.
We also have concerns about students being downgraded and the potential unfairness in results. As a Council, we are committed to challenging this by lobbying central government for a review if they do prejudice our young people to ensure students are given the results they deserve.
However despite these challenges, students have been able to adapt to learning at home and our schools have been doing amazing work to keep pupils engaged and supported throughout this crisis. I hope that with receiving these grades and qualifications, local students can look forward to the future, whether that is a university place, an apprenticeship, training, volunteering or into employment.
A heartfelt thank you must also go to the borough’s headteachers, teachers and staff who have worked tirelessly to support their students and communities during this time and have played a crucial role, both locally and nationally, in the response to the coronavirus through teaching and beyond.
Finally, as we look to schools fully reopening in September, I’d like to reassure parents and carers that we are continuing to work closely with our school improvement partner Camden Learning as well as headteachers, governing bodies and local teaching unions to support schools with their preparations to welcome back all pupils to an environment where they feel safe and supported.
Students should contact their school if they require support or they are unhappy with their results. Students can also get in touch with a Connexions careers adviser and get advice on training, education, jobs, and apprenticeships by calling 020 7974 7252 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. For mental health support, students can contact Kooth, a Council commissioned counselling service which is free, safe and anonymous. Further information on Kooth can be found here.
