To establish a broad, consistent approach to the way students’ work is marked, so that students feel valued and have a clear understanding of how well they are doing. Marking will help students to improve their work and will inform teacher planning and monitoring.
Each student will have their work in class marked on a regular basis. Effective marking is a two way process in which students respond to teachers’ comments by undertaking corrections, further development of the work or a complete reworking.
All work will be assessed a minimum of once per half term. Students will be issued with challenging but achievable targets at the start of each academic year and these will be regularly reviewed.
Student targets are displayed on the front of exercise books and tracked using the Academy flight path. This ensures that students are aware of their targets in all subjects and can easily track their progress towards their learning goals.
Attainment and effort grades are important assessment indicators and allow progress to be tracked, monitored and evaluated. Data is shared with parents/carers through annual reports, parents evenings and through access to our online reporting systems.
