Marking Policy 


‘Feedback is only effective if it is acted on.’ Shirley Clarke

It is through the effective feedback that children receive about their work that they make improvements and develop their skills and understanding further. The most effective feedback is oral feedback, after which pupils should take immediate action. However, it is not feasible to expect teachers to give all pupils oral feedback during every lesson, so the following can also be effective:

  • self assessment
  • peer assessment
  • teacher marking

Effective marking leads to pupil progress and focused teaching.
