A secondary school in Bristol has decided to give up traditional marking of children's work.
All 950 children at Bedminster Down School now no longer receive a grade or score for their work.
Instead they receive feedback from teachers in the classroom. Live marking is simply sitting with a student and talking through a piece of work; what has gone well and identifying areas for improvement.
Impact marking involves the quick identification of gaps in understanding so the next lesson is planned to close any gaps and provide stretch and challenge. Summative assessments are used to provide additional benchmarks for progress.
Teachers claim traditional marking has little or no impact on pupil progress.
