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

In this webinar we:

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

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.
