Only babies need spoon feeding! We know what we are learning and whyWe know what good looks like and how to achieve itWe know what we are doing well and where we need to improveWe know what our next steps are and that makes us confident that we can succeedWe can see how the skills that we are learning in this lesson transfer to other contexts and thats helping to make us better, more independent learnersOur teachers provide clear and challenging objectivesOur teachers help us to recognise and achieve the standards we should be aiming forOur teachers (and our peers) give us regular feedback for learning which is both positive and specificOur teachers show us precisely what we need to do in order to make progress in our learning Our teachers emphasise the links between learning in this lesson and learning elsewhere. This means we know how to apply and adapt the skills we are learning 21Assessment for Learning creates EQSelf-assessment Peer assessmentThinking time for questions Sharing criteriaFocussed markingleads to self awarenessleads to empathy and resiliencebuilds self-esteemenables students to set targets and goalshelps them understand mistakes as learning experiences

Effective feedback should:focus on the learning objectives and/or success criteria;confirm that pupils are on the right track;stimulate the correction of errors or improvement of a piece of work;scaffold or support pupils next steps;provide opportunities for pupils to think things through for themselves;comment on progress over a number of attempts;avoid comparisons with other pupils;provide pupils with the opportunity to respond.23negativeNon-specificpositivespecific
