Feedback and Assessment

Aim: To provide guidance on the expectations of the Academy regarding feedback and assessment which enable all students to reach their full learning potential.
Policy: Ensures that feedback is well timed, personal and diagnostic so that both staff and students can plan for progress.  Assessment opportunities provide accurate information relating to current performance for students, staff and parents.

WHAT Feedback Policy

Key principals underpinning the policy:

  • All feedback is ‘Meaningful, Manageable and Motivating’
  • It is regular and continual
  • It is a personalised two-way teaching and learning dialogue that engages the learner
  • It is applied consistently to inform learners of their strengths and next steps to make progress, they are responsible for taking action
  • It informs teachers of future differentiated planning
