Submitting your Assignment: 

It is important that you submit your assessment ON TIME. If you think you will have difficulty submitting your assessment on time you must speak to your module tutor as a matter of urgency. If you fail to submit your assignment on time, you should consider submitting an ‘Extenuating Circumstances’ claim.

If you submit after the submission date/time and do not have any extenuating circumstances for this, it will be marked as LATE and will not be marked (0% awarded).

If you feel you cannot make the hand-in date or that there are reasons for you underperforming in the assessment, you need to discuss it with your tutor as soon as possible and also complete an online Extenuating Circumstances form (available via a link on My Portal- Staffordshire University) within 5 working days of the submission date to explain the reason for this; you will need to provide some evidence to support such a claim (e.g. a medical certificate for illness).

Case Study: 

Cora is 25 and a single mum to Harry who is 10 years old. She does not know where his father is as he moved away when she was pregnant and is not interested in his son, and she has not been able to trace him for any financial support. Cora and Harry live in a one- bedroom flat on a deprived inner city housing estate with high crime rates and struggling schools. Cora works part time in a local shop so that she can work during school hours, she is paid the minimum wage but does receive some benefits. Cora struggles to pay the bills and provide healthy and substantial meals, and in the winter can often not afford to turn the heating on.

Cora is white British and her son is mixed race-his dad was originally from the Caribbean. Cora suffers with depression at times and takes medication.                                                                                       She smokes and there is a history of breast cancer in her family. She is determined that Harry does well at school and that he has a better future than her, as she did not complete her G.C.S.E’s.

Harry is often in trouble at school, he is frequently truant even though his mum takes him to school each morning.   He has made friends with other children on the estate who are older and often in trouble with the police.
