Our friends at VIEW need your help. VIEW is a registered charity, which represents Qualified Teachers of Visually Impaired children and young people (QTVIs). It exists to help support the education, development and opportunities of children with vision impairment.
They would like to receive feedback from schools and services on their experiences, both good and bad, of access arrangements for this summer’s exams. They are primarily interested In GCSE and A level exams, as they are in ongoing dialogue with the exam boards, but they are also happy to receive comments on National Curriculum tests, too. Their aim is to collate the information they receive into a summary report which they will share with colleagues in the sector and with the exam boards.
Please provide as much information as you can in your feedback, including:
• the exam concerned, subject, paper and date
• the access arrangement concerned, e.g modified paper, extra time, human support etc.
• a description of what went wrong/went well
• if you wrote to the exam board concerned about the issue, please attach a copy of your letter/email and any reply you received.
All the information received will be anonymised in the summary report, but your contact details would be useful in case VIEW need to get back to you to clarify any of the information you send.
They will accept information up to the end of the summer term 2018.
Schools can contact VIEW with their feedback, here.
