Roger Inman, Stone King’s Head of Education, provided insight to Tes for an article entitled: ‘A levels 2021: 'Few requests' for legal help on appeals’.
The article looks at the reasons behind the lack of legal challenges to grades awarded this year, although Roger cautioned that more claims may follow when the ‘non-priority’ deadline ends on September 17.
He said: “Given the high percentage of top grades this year, it’s perhaps unsurprising that there are few requests for advice from schools and colleges regarding legal challenges to grades so far.”
adding he expected some claims to emerge later this month,
"particularly regarding alleged disability discrimination by schools and colleges".
In 2020, Stone King dealt with one tribunal claim of alleged disability discrimination from a state school, one tribunal claim of alleged disability discrimination from a private school and two extensive complaints regarding the centre-assessed grades process from FE colleges.
