The S.E.N.D. team at Southfields Academy are responsible for deciding whether individual students are eligible for special access arrangements. Assessment needs to be carried out well in advance of any external examination. The deadline for access arrangements for public examinations is 21st February 2019. Unless there is an emergency requirement all applications must be submitted to the examinations boards before then.
If students are eligible for extra time they will be notified. The details of their extra time and access arrangements will appear on the label on their desk in the examination venue. Students taking 25% extra time in an examination must take this time and will not be allowed to leave the examination venue before this time is up.
If students are eligible for a scribe or reader they will normally sit their examinations in a room alone rather than the main examinations venue.
