While some schools and colleges have used the latest government announcement to make the decision that they will no longer set work for year 11 and 13, others are saying things along the lines of 'anything you do or don't do might affect your grade'. This can't be right. It makes sense that pupils will struggle with motivation/ work in the current circumstances: they've been told they're not doing the exams they've been working for a minimum of two years, they may be ill or have caring responsibilities, they may have problems accessing the work on IT. Attitudes of parents will be different. Some teachers are not setting work or not looking at it. Disadvantaged students, in particular, are likely to struggle without the routine or support of school. It's not fair for some pupils to be worrying that some random piece of work that has been set for the sake of it online may affect their teacher assessment grade and therefore their university offers etc. This needs a national position. Schools and colleges should be told they cannot count any work following school closures except for coursework or any other NEA where there has always been transparency. Can anyone raise this with the powers that be? It's more opportunity for inequalities if not addressed.
