Marking and Assessment

At Holly House we believe marking should provide constructive feedback to every child, focussing on success and improvement against learning objectives. Marking is a fundamental element of the assessment of pupil’s work, helping them become reflective learners and to close the gap between current and desired performance. Marking refers to the interaction between staff and pupil with both written and verbal comments. Assessment takes a longer term view and is the judgement of where a pupil is at a given time and the evidence to back this up. Click below to view our school marking and assessment policy.
