What am I doing well in this subject?
Assessment and feedback is an important to good teaching and learning. The more immediate the feedback the greater the impact for our students. Feedback must encourage our students to take responsibility for improving their own work; it should not take away from this responsibility by adults doing the hard thinking work for the pupil (e.g., making corrections to spellings, punctuation or elements of grammar).
We have developed a feedback policy that should ensure students can answer two questions in subject specific detail –
What do I need to do to improve my work in this subject?
We assess our students to help them learn, challenge their thinking and enable them to take ownership of their learning.We ensure that teaching is responsive to students’ learning and is personalised.Attached is the letter that went out to parents in February 2020 about the new policy and a slide that details the marking codes that you will see on your child’s work. There is also a document that enables your child to reflect on the quality of their written notes. Please encourage your son / daughter to answer those two questions as you talk to them about their work.
