Students and families should have faith in this year’s GCSE and A Level results

The parenting website Mumsnet has published a new poll of parents’ attitudes to this summer’s GCSE and A Level grades. Around half (54%) of parents say awarding teacher-assessed grades is not a fair process.

Nick Brook, deputy general secretary of school leaders’ union NAHT, said: “Students and their families have every reason to be confident in this year’s results, even though there have been no exams. The results are based on students’ actual work, which has been assessed by the people who know them best – their teachers. The grades have been moderated and quality assured. There are no algorithms this year, just human effort and human expert judgement.”
