In order to advance pupil progress and outcomes, feedback should be given as close to the point of teaching as possible. We will encourage children to take increasing responsibility for improving their learning. Teaching staff will review learning which may include reading work, making notes, speaking to pupils or asking further questions to pupils. This will be used to inform future teaching.
All work will be acknowledged in some form by class teachers. This may be through simple symbols such as ticks. Where written marking or annotations are appropriate, the intention is that minimum teacher time should lead to maximum outcomes. One way in which we achieve this is through the use of our marking code, which combines use of symbols and colours.
In order to report on outcomes to various stakeholders, staff may be asked to complete summative assessments at regular intervals. These assessment results may need to be recorded digitally on FFT Aspire.
Staff are also asked to record learning of English and Maths on FFT Aspire. Staff are reminded to provide wait time between a child’s performance of an objective immediately after teaching in order to assess the degree to which the objective has been learnt.
