<font face="Calibri">I am teaching at a top independent school. I have been told to allow more time for the worst pupils to improve their Controlled Assessment even though all the marking has been done and we have internally standardised their work. The following was sent to me via an email, needless to say in the interest of the innocent, names have been changed.</font><font face="Calibri">“I think that the 6 pupils with C/D need to resubmit - with the objective of raising marks to a low B. Please could you give all possible help and support to these pupils to ensure that their marks are improved.</font><font face="Calibri">If any pupils with A/A* quibble about this, I suggest that you refer them to Roger (although you should of course encourage them to accept the situation). </font><font face="Calibri">I know how strongly you feel about the "fairness" of this so for the pupils with B I suggest that you use your judgement - in the spirit of fairness and consistent with the time available.”</font> Can I just refuse to do this? Should I contact my union?
