    Hi all,

    I'm the English lead in a small, independent SEN school who are moving from Classroom Monitor to SIMS. In September, I am due to start teaching GCSE English Language using the Pearson Edexcel exam board and specification.

    The administrator at my school has populated mark books on SIMS for each of the components of this qualification: Fiction and Imaginative Writing; Non-Fiction and Transactional Writing; and Spoken Language.

    I'm trying to work out how we would calculate 'working at' GCSE grades throughout the year using SIMS. Has anyone done this or could anyone point me in the direction of resources that would help me to do this? I've had a look but it seems that the exam board only publish descriptors for Grades 2, 5 and 8.
