Feedback and Assessment
Impactful Feedback at CCJ
At CCJ, we believe feedback and marking should provide constructive feedback to every child, focusing on successes and further improvements against learning intentions; enabling children to become reflective learners and helping them to close the gap between current and desired performance. Quality feedback is paramount to building confidence and suggesting ways to further improve. This can be given both verbally, in groups and through marking in books.
Children’s books and pupil conferencing are both crucial ways of recording progress and demonstrating impact, therefore they form a core part of the assessment and monitoring process, which includes opportunities for moderation with colleagues and/or external sources.
The importance of a rich variety of feedback including peer evaluation, self-evaluation, group targets, self-assessment, verbal feedback, student marking etc. each play a vital part in the breadth of feedback that positively impacts on learning. The majority of this feedback should be personalised for an individual and should include examples of success as well as next steps across a period of time.
