We use ‘I can’ statements in English and maths.

 If the teacher assesses that the child has achieved the statement we double tick the statement to show that the ‘I can’ has been achieved.

We use flexible grouping and will sort books at the end of each lesson to identify which children need additional support, which children need to consolidate further with a concept and which children may be ready to work at a deeper level or offered more sophisticated problems. Any verbal feedback will be given to each group at the beginning of a lesson.

If the child needs more support or additional practise the teacher may well offer targeted support with an LSA or classroom assistant. This will happen as soon as possible after the lesson to address any misconceptions.

Teachers praise and encourage, reminding the children of the success criteria and how to improve during the lessons.

Stickers and other stamps are used to give positive feedback.
