Best Practice Focus: Effective feedback: A whole-school approach

Too often, teachers lack clarity about what feedback is and how to give it. On top of this, lethal mutations can blunt the impact of effective strategies. In this Best Practice Focus, Robbie Burns presents a comprehensive whole-school model of feedback

This seven-page free download considers the problems with teachers' varying interpretations of what constitutes feedback and the common 'lethal mutations' that can blight pupils' learning.

The author, Robbie Burns, sets out the research into what makes effective feedback and draws upon this to present a comprehensive model for a consistent whole-school approach – the feedback loop.

He considers how to build a school culture of high quality feedback as well as the various feedback strategies that sit within the model. He also discusses how to lead the development of feedback in your primary school.
