Feedback isn't the same as marking, but many schools have seen an increase in the expectations put on teachers for marking and visible assessment. Making a whole school policy work in every department in a school is a very challenging thing to do, and too often the emphasis has been on proving the teacher is complying with a policy (how many colours of pen does your school use?), rather than focussing on what will have the most impact on students. This session will look at how we have developed our own department feedback policy, which has taken a few years to get to where we think it meets our own demands of; being efficient with teacher time, high impact with students, meets whole school expectations. I will share how we developed out policy, why we feel it works and the impact it has had on teachers and students.
