Grades without exams: explore practical challenges when preparing for grade appeals

Wednesday 07 July 2021

3.30pm - 4.15pm

In the final of our three-part ‘Grades without Exams’ webinar series, we will explore practical challenges when preparing for grade appeals and managing data requests.

We will:

  • Outline the appeals process as documented in the latest Joint Council of Qualifications guidance and discuss other routes of legal challenge
  • Highlight the likely grounds of appeal and challenge and provide advice on what you can do now to prepare for these
  • Suggest how to be proactive with subject access requests
  • Discuss how to handle Freedom of Information Act requests

This session was originally advertised to take place on 03 August 2021 but has been rescheduled to take place during term-time by request.

This session follows two previous webinars, which have looked at:

  1. What schools can do to avoid legal risks and challenges
  2. Equality considerations and the obligations of assessment centres in relation to teacher assessed grades

Both previous events are available to watch on-demand using the links above.

Given the pace of change and need for clarity on this year’s approach to assessments we have provided answers to your most FAQs here. We will endeavour to keep these up to date as and when further guidance is released.
