:: Marking and feedback: making it manageable and meaningful in English and mathematics ::
Outline
The central role of effective feedback in raising attainment, supporting progress and closing gaps in learning has been well documented, and has an even greater profile in the new Ofsted framework. High quality feedback is a critical component in provision for English and mathematics, but striking the right balance between workload and impact has its challenges. This course explores the ways in which school policies, approaches and monitoring activities create a culture of aspiration and continuous improvement. Ways in which these would enable pupils to use feedback to 'improve their knowledge, understanding and skills in English and mathematics.' will be explored. The course will give delegates the opportunity to reflect on current practice and consider how to develop a consistent whole school approach to marking and feedback that is fully supportive of children’s continuing development in English and maths, fosters positive attitudes towards and develops 'curious, interested' learners and provides a range of manageable feedback models to adopt and adapt to suit the needs of their pupils.
Prerequisites
Please bring 3 or 4 pupils' maths and English books (from any year group), to share your current marking and feedback as a starting point for a discussion and to support delegates. If you work in the foundation stage and also want to bring 3 or 4 pupils' Learning Journey books with you, this will also be useful.
Outcomes:

  • learn how to use a range of manageable approaches to feedback and marking to enhance progress and attainment in English and maths
  • improve your understanding of how effective feedback and marking helps pupils to develop as reflective learners
  • have the opportunity to reflect on their own practice that will feed into school policies and inform monitoring
