Hundreds of thousands of young people could be assessed for GCSE, AS and A-level grades without the support they would normally receive.
Four organisations fear this could see students hit with a huge unfair disadvantage.
They are urging Ofqual and the Department for Education to take the students’ needs into account when deciding on assessment rules for 2021.
More than 300,000 students across England are facing unfair grading this summer and it could hit them with decades of disadvantage, disability organisations have warned.
27% of deaf children are being taught by teachers wearing face masks or coverings in class, survey reveals.
Figures rise to 49% in sixth form or college and 34% in secondary school.
Governments across the UK do not recommend them in class and the National Deaf Children’s Society says many deaf children won’t understand their teacher.
Charity calls for schools and Governments to act fast to stop the gap between deaf and hearing children’s results widening.
One in four deaf children across the UK could struggle at school because their teachers are wearing face masks or coverings in class, new research shows.
New research, carried out by the National Deaf Children’s Society (@NDCS_UK) among 800 parents of deaf children, shows that just 36% were likely to send their child to school if teachers were asked to wear face masks. A further one in five (19%) were uncertain about what they would do.
