‘Inaccuracies’ in Information and Communications Technology coursework at Ravens Wood School
11:45am Tuesday 17th September 2013 in News
RAVENS Wood School has confirmed it is being investigated by an exam body for ‘inaccuracies’ to do with Information and Communications Technology (ICT) assessments.
Exam body Edexcel is scrutinising the institution in Oakley Road, Bromley, about its BTEC ICT.
The BTECS are work-related qualifications based on coursework.
A school spokesman said: “Following a quality assurance visit by Edexcel in July, the school was made aware of inaccuracies in the assessments associated with the BTEC ICT qualification.
“The school is cooperating fully with Edexcel who are currently conducting an investigation into this matter.”
The school's Ofsted inspection reportedly took place in June although the report still has to be published.
An Ofsted spokesman said: “As part of Ofsted’s inspection process, we carry out rigorous quality assurance of our inspections and reports.
"Sometimes this means we do not meet the normal timeline for publication. The report for the school is expected to be published shortly.”
The school's executive principal Sir George Berwick was awarded a CBE in 2007 for his services to education.
