Marking & Feedback

A small number of basic principles underpin our approach to marking and feedback. These are further exemplified in the Teaching & Learning in the Teaching & Learning Policy and the Learning Toolkit.

  1. Teachers must use pupils’ recorded work to assess understanding and address pupil misconceptions as part of the teaching cycle. 
  2. Most works should be acknowledged however, this might be by the teacher or through peer or self-assessment (see guidelines for marking requirements). 
  3. Peer and self-assessment are powerful tools and pupils should be guided in their appropriate use. Pupils should also be encouraged to reflect their own learning.
