Improving feedback in primary schools

The quality of feedback in primary schools is an ongoing issue for teachers and leaders.

Feedback is repeatedly quoted as an improvement point in inspection reports. Much educational research identifies it as a hugely influential factor in improving learning and progress.

‘The most powerful single moderator that enhances achievement is feedback.’

Like all things in school, you will see the most impact in areas where you agree, adopt and stick to a consistent approach. This doesn’t mean an approach identical for all year groups, as marking clearly needs to be age and ability specific. It does, however, mean that some principles and agreements need to be reached for everyone to follow on a day-to-day basis.

Feedback refers to a whole range of issues, including:

  • Written
  • Oral
  • Body language
  • Feedback from pupils, adults and others

Ensure High Quality of Feedback in primary schools

High-quality feedback is essential to ensure schools can improve, develop, grow and adapt to meet the needs of pupils, parents, and teachers and achieve a high level of OFSTED results.
