‘How do you ensure that children are learning, without bringing staff to their knees? We found a way!
Six years ago, I decided to ban teachers from writing in children’s books. Children became more independent, the quality of their writing improved and standards went up. Ofsted are happy with it and, crucially, so are teachers.
Since then, ‘no marking’ has really caught on. Over the last few years, there have been blogs, tweets and articles aplenty about changes to reduce teacher workload and to improve retention’.
In this course, in collaboration with Big Education, we will share our story of how we abolished written marking and embedded Fast Feedback to create truly effective learners with ownership over their own learning, whilst simultaneously reducing teacher workload. We’ll be facilitating an exploration of how you could create something similar in your own context.
What you will gain from this course;
- You will learn how one school implemented an effective ‘no written marking’ strategy
- You will have the opportunity to make sense of and work through how to make this work in your own context
