As part of the KCSP INSET Training Day, Mr Baldock delivered a training session on the topic of marking and feedback. In this session, Mr Baldock detailed the journey that Our Lady of Hartley has been on in recent years as we developed a more forward-thinking way of delivering feedback to pupils at the same time as reducing workload for teachers.
This session detailed the key literature and studies that lay at the heart of the new feedback policy developed at Our Lady of Hartley and (using example from the classroom) discussed the advantages of such an approach from the point of view of: teachers, pupils and parents and governors.
Unfortunately, the entire presentation is too large to share on our website. However, a shortened version is available below alongside the new and improved Our Lady of Hartley Feedback Policy.
Mr Baldock delivered a training session to NQTs discussing the Primary Computing Curriculum.
