Teachers under pressure to raise GCSE and A level grades
Large numbers of teachers have been put under pressure to raise students’ grades this year, or change the evidence going towards them, as revealed by an exclusive Tes survey.
In a survey of more than 2,800 grading teachers, one in four reported that parents had put pressure on them to raise students' grades, or to change the evidence going towards their teacher-assessed GCSE and A-level grades, while a third reported pressure from students.
"We have had so many emails [from parents] threatening legal action, telling us that we don't know how to do our jobs, getting clarification of what we are doing 'for when they appeal if their kid doesn't get the grade they need'," a state school head of science marking GCSEs and A levels said.

Amanda Spielman's appearance before the Education Committee yesterday was always going to be a popcorn moment for anyone interested in education policy and the school inspection system.
But it's unlikely that anyone expected Ofsted's chief inspector to suggest that boys sending girls nude pictures was not a safeguarding issue, particularly in light of the sexual harassment concerns flagged in Ofsted's own report on the issue just last week. But that's what happened, much to the astonishment of many Tes readers.
Ms Spielman's words may jar with those school leaders who have been told by Ofsted to develop a culture where all kinds of sexual harassment are recognised and addressed, involving appropriate sanctions.
