Feedback & Developmental Marking

‘One of the most effective uses of a teacher's time is in giving good feedback - which should be specific and encouraging.’

(Sutton Trust May 2011)

Pupil feedback makes the biggest possible difference in supporting learning and helping children make the best possible progress.  This comes in a variety of forms from verbal feedback, pupil self-assessment and feedback in developmental marking.  At St Mary’s we are proud of the way we have developed a culture of feedback in developmental marking.  All lessons have clear learning intentions with success criteria that guide feedback and marking comments. We provide children with next learning steps or a learning question linked to the learning intention.
