NWSSEE UNFIT GUIDANCE SEPT 2023
NONSUCH & WALLINGTON SECOND STAGE ENTRANCE EXAMINATION (NWSSEE)
(For September 2024 Entry)
IMPORTANT GUIDANCE ON WHAT YOU SHOULD DO IF YOU THINK YOUR CHILD IS NOT FIT, WHETHER FOR MEDICAL OR OTHER REASONS, TO SIT THE NWSSEE ON SATURDAY 30 SEPTEMBER 2023
When a child says they are not feeling well, it is sometimes difficult for a parent to decide what to do. Are they just nervous or really sick?
It is important that your child is given the opportunity to do their very best in the NWSSEE which is not possible if they are not ‘fit’ to sit the test. Not being fit means that your child’s condition or well-being on the day of the test, other than suffering from normal and expected levels of nerves, is such that their performance during the test may be impaired.
If you believe your child is not fit to take the test on Saturday 30 September, you MUST email email@example.com BEFORE the test is due to start. The email MUST contain your child’s full name and candidate number as well as a brief explanation of the reason they are unfit to sit the test.
DO NOT BRING YOUR CHILD TO THE TEST
You must consult your doctor/walk-in centre to obtain written confirmation that your child was not fit to sit the test on Saturday 30 September and explaining why this is the case. This written confirmation must be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than Wednesday 4 October 2023. If you do not follow these instructions or provide appropriate evidence, your child will not be invited to sit the test at a later date.
In addition, if your child has experienced a sudden recent traumatic incident, for example a bereavement, you may consider that they are not in a fit state to sit the test. Please contact the school as above and explain the circumstances. Evidence will be requested.
