Events and Training
Our schools host events throughout the year to celebrate and share best practice. Subjects include stress management, wellbeing and our popular Fast Feedback approach to marking. Details of all upcoming events are published on our website.
Through The Wroxham Teaching School we also offer a wide range of learning opportunities. They include
- Initial Teacher Training

We are committed to staff wellbeing and have made great strides in reducing teacher workload, such as through our innovative and highly acclaimed no marking policy, known as Fast Feedback. As part of this approach, children mark their own work and all feedback from teaching staff is given verbally. Teachers look in children’s books every day, meet with them once a week and adjust planning as they see fit but only children get to write in their own book.
Schools that have successfully adopted this approach have seen a number of benefits:
- Teacher workload and stress is reduced
- Children take more pride in their written work
- Children spend more time reflecting on their learning
Our Fast Feedback approach has become so popular that we now hold conferences throughout the year for others to learn about it and how to successfully embed it into their schools. If you would like to find out more, please get in touch.
Fantastic! Very thought provoking and inspirational.
