Improve feedback, reduce workload

“Teachers in the intervention group saved an average of 3.45 hours a week by replacing written methods with verbal ones” March 2018 research report


Who is the programme for?

The programme is targeted at middle leaders with subject or key stage responsibilities and/or senior leaders who want to reduce teacher workload whilst ensuring that feedback makes a difference to classroom practice.

What is involved?

The programme will share the findings from Southwark’s own research project and the difference it made to teachers and pupils. The programme then supports leaders to design and implement changes to their own approach to written marking, by helping them:

  • audit their current marking practice and its impact on pupils and teachers
  • explore the DFE and EEF evidence about marking and workload, as well as evidence about effective feedback more generally
  • design their own change to marking policy and track its impact

The programme is led by Alex Farley, Deputy Head at Angel Oak Academy and Jemima Rhys-Evans, Deputy Head at Charles Dickens Primary School.
