From education to employment

Layla Moran: Blocking pupil grade appeals could deny opportunities for years to come

The Liberal Democrat's Education Spokesperson Layla Moran

The Liberal Democrat’s Education Spokesperson @LaylaMoran commented on the announcement that education establishments, not individuals can appeal predicted grades:

“This completely fails to get to grips with the issue. If individual pupils are not able to challenge grades which are an unfair reflection of their ability, it could seriously impact their education and employment opportunities for years to come. 

“It is absolutely unacceptable for any student to be unfairly penalised because of their family’s income or any other factor. 

“The Secretary of State needs to urgently put in place resources to ensure every child has the chance to appeal their grades and resit assessments when it is safe to do so.”
