Up to 70% of children and young people who are sexually exploited go missing or run away. All children and young people who go missing or run away need urgent help. Missing children should be reported to the police.

No child should go hungry. I welcomed the Government’s U-turn to provide free school meal vouchers over the summer but thousands of eligible children aren’t registered. It’s crucial that families get this information and register by 10 July. Please share: https://t.co/O8Hmr6yykG

We believe sex and relationships education is vital for young people. From September, children in the UK will be taught how to recognise what constitutes abuse or inappropriate behaviour and how to raise any worries or concerns with a trusted adult. https://t.co/uGpcv3XFNK

A Level Reform

How will Waldegrave manage the changes to A Levels?

A Levels have been reformed. This means the subject content and assessment style has changed.

The main features of the new A Levels are:

  1. Assessment will be mainly by exam, with other types of assessment used only where they are needed to test essential skills.
  2. AS and A Levels are assessed at the end of the course. AS assessments will typically take place after 1 year’s study and A levels after 2. The courses will no longer be divided into modules and there will be no exams in January.
  3. AS and A Levels will be decoupled – this means that AS results will no longer count towards an A level, in the way they do now. 
  4. AS Levels have been designed by exam boards to be taught alongside the first year of A levels.
  5. The content for the new A Levels has been reviewed and updated. Universities played a greater role in this for the new qualifications than they did previously.
