Transition from Yr 12 to Yr 13
It is anticipated that the majority of Level 3 students will enrol in Year 12 for two years. Where a Sixth Form student’s attendance, conduct or attitude to learning is not in line with expectations, a Beckfoot Trust School will notify the student and parent or carer, that his or her place in the Sixth Form is in doubt. Similarly, where a student’s performance in assessments suggests that he or she is not able to cope with the demands of the course, the student and parent or carer will be notified that continuation may not be appropriate for him or her. In all such cases, the Sixth Form team and the Careers Co-ordinator in that school will discuss this issue with the student and parents or carer and explore alternative options to help maximise the students’ opportunity for success and progression.
Unless circumstances are exceptional (and this at the Headteacher’s discretion), there will be no opportunity to repeat a year.
