Session Synopsis

The Department for Education (DfE) says that ‘exams are the best and fairest form of assessment’. However, some students cannot demonstrate what they know, understand and can do under exam conditions.

In this session, Amanda will explore how exam boards make reasonable adjustments. Importantly, it will delve into how and why students use or don’t use the adjustments they are allowed.

Speaker bio

Amanda was a secondary English teacher and SENCo in Cornwall where most students with SEND are placed in their local mainstream schools. She also advised both primary and secondary schools on SEND issues in the classroom, including how to assess knowledge and understanding when compulsory tests and exams (SATS, GCSEs) were inaccessible. She is a long-standing member of The SENCO Forum and a member of Ofqual’s Access Consultation Forum. Since 2014, she has been researching into how students with SEND take GCSEs and how they use their access arrangements.
