Feedback and Marking

Huntington School Department Feedback Strategies 2015

You may see some of these symbols on your child’s work.  Teachers will use them in the way they think best for individuals – i.e. drawing attention to all mistakes at once may not be useful.  Our pupils are encouraged to use these as they carry out peer and self assessment.

Symbol Meaning
Sp Check spelling
// Missing paragraph
/\ Indicates there is a word/words missing which means the sentence doesn’t make sense. E.g. They /\ the castle.
? The meaning is unclear
C Capital letters (usually missing!)
P Check punctuation
