Learning outcomes for participants/users and, where relevant, pupils or students

Our training will give your school a cohesive and structured approach to effective marking. Once trained, both teachers and confident teaching assistants will be able to mark work to a very good standard.

Effective strategies for ensuring pupil's respond to marking are a key part of the course.

Evidence underpinning this approach

“Woodberry Down is an outstanding school… The school excels in many areas of its work, but is especially successful in the quality of the academic guidance it gives pupils… There is an extremely effective written dialogue in books, between teachers and pupils, that stems from an efficient system of marking using tailor-made labels. These show pupils how well they are doing, ask them questions to move their learning forward and set new targets for them. Pupils' responses show a heightened awareness of their learning. One pupil said, 'You get good advice and get your levels up.' ”

Woodberry Down Community Primary School, Hackney


“Mandeville Primary is a good school. It is improving rapidly and starting to exhibit some outstanding features… This is because teachers are transforming the pupils from passive learners with low expectations of what they can achieve, as seen in some poor quality work in their old books, into active learners with higher aspirations. There are two key reasons for this. First, the dialogue established by teachers through highly effective marking emphasises their high expectations and ensures that pupils can reflect on how to improve their work. Marking is of a very high standard throughout the school and helps the pupils to understand how well they are doing and where a piece of work can be improved. Their books are full of their ‘green pen’ responses to comments and additional challenges set by teachers after each lesson.”
