so we've asked for them to be sent the results to our home address. Does anybody know whether they will arrive on results day? Will the school have received all the GCSE results before results day in order to send those out who can't get to school, or does the school receive them on on results day? many thanks>
I don't know (hopefully a teacher will be along to advise soon) but we were away for DS's AS results last year and we gave a trusted friend a letter giving them permission to collect on his behalf and then they phoned with the results. Not sure if your school will allow that or if you would want that, but thought I'd mention it! Good luck with the results and enjoy your holiday x
They probably won't get to your home address on results day (but aren't you away anyway?). What usually happens is that the post is done on results day and any that haven't been picked up are automatically posted. Our admin staff are term time only except for a few days they are paid overtime. You could nominate a proxy to collect them on your behalf (sending them with a signed letter) and you may also be able to phone the school and get them to give them you down the phone if they know in advance.
Ring the school on Monday/email them today. You never know - they may allow her Grandmother to collect. Explain the situation and they may be able to help. Although, surely if you ring them on Thursday morning they should give you them. Does the school have an intranet for the pupils?
Different schools have different policies. One school I worked in would only give them to someone other than the student with written permission from that student. They also would not give them out over the phone. The results belong to that student and they do not have the right to give them to anyone else or the srudent could complain. They will be posted Thursday and should arrive at your house on the Friday. I doubt anyone will be in the school before Thursday.
Hi DD eventually got her results YESTERDAY after a huge cock up at school. Regardless to say a formal letter of complaint is winging it's way to school as it has caused so much stress for her, luckily college have held her place until she rings the results through to them tomorrow. She did really well and I'm very proud of her acheivements and how well she has handled the situation.
