English – Flash Marking Codes

This week all students are taking their assessments home. Todmorden High School’s English department is taking part in a trial run by the Education Endowment Fund and Durham University where by we use Flash Marking codes to give students very specific feedback. As you read through your child’s English work, you will see these codes are used to annotate their work and to give overall strengths and targets. Students should all have a copy of these codes in their Independent Learning Journal (years 7-9) or in their Revision Folder (years 10 and 11).

If you cannot find the paper copy of these codes, please follow the link below to find an electronic copy. So as not to invalidate the results of the trial, it is important that you do not share these codes on social media or in any other way, which is why we have put them in a secure area of our website where a password is required.  The password has been sent to you via text message.  Please contact the school if you wish for a paper copy to be sent home.
