Pembrokeshire GCSE results 2020

Published

on

THE LOCAL AUTHORITY has congratulated all learners who have received GCSE and vocational qualification results this week (Aug 20).

All schools have provided opportunities for learners to receive their results on-site today with appropriate social distancing measures in place. All settings are providing information, advice and guidance to learners via an appointments system.

Learners’ achievements this year are to be celebrated as they are in any other year.
The Covid-19 pandemic has brought significant challenges for learners, families, and schools this year with new systems used to calculate learner outcomes due to the cancellation of the Summer 2020 Examination Series.

Guy Woodham, Pembrokeshire County Council’s Cabinet Member for Education and Lifelong Learning said: “The Authority welcomes the Education Minister’s announcement on Monday, 17th of August, on the Summer 2020 Examination Series and the decision to use Centre Assessed Grades.

“The last few months have been difficult for all learners, their families and schools and we thank the Minister for taking the decision to support learners and the schools.”

Councillor Woodham went on: “I would like to congratulate all learners on their achievements. As a local authority, we have been committed to supporting learners in achieving the best possible outcomes.

“Learners who have received their results today will have acquired a range of skills that enable them to be lifelong learners and hopefully achieve more than they thought possible. I wish all learners every success for the future.”

The Council’s Director for Education, Steven Richards-Downes, added: “Schools have worked hard to provide learners with dignity, purpose and options. We congratulate all learners today on their achievements. Every school has enabled learners to achieve outcomes that will provide them with a range of options.

“This year, more than ever, should not be about the data. It is about celebrating learners and their achievements whatever the grade, making sure they focus on their next steps and moving forward.

“We are sharing in the success of each learner and all schools have shared examples of this success with the Council.”

The governors and staff at Ysgol Bro Gwaun congratulate all learners on their
Achievements.

Mr Paul Edwards, Headteacher at Ysgol Bro Gwaun commented, ‘The results our
students have received today are richly deserved, and are a testament to their hard
work throughout the year and in previous years. Under difficult circumstances, these
are an outstanding set of results, and are a fair reflection of the efforts made by both
pupils and staff.
