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.
- Teachers must use pupils’ recorded work to assess understanding and address pupil misconceptions as part of the teaching cycle.
- Most works should be acknowledged however, this might be by the teacher or through peer or self-assessment (see guidelines for marking requirements).
- 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.
