OFSTED does not expect detailed written dialogue in pupils' exercise books-official

Ofsted announced yesterday does not expect to see unnecessary or extensive written dialogue between teachers and pupils in exercise books and folders. Ofsted recognises the importance of different forms of feedback and inspectors will look at how these are used to promote learning.

This is reassuring but I feel a touch insulting as well. How many teachers actually DO waste their time on what it calls ‘unnecessary written dialogue’. Are they blaming the senior leaders here or the poor beleaguered teachers? In a sense it doesn’t matter. Just one more source of stress removed?
