Reports are handed out to students in June and December of each year. Each report will indicate where the student is situated according to the curriculum, their work habits and effort. Each report will also indicate attendance and strengths as well as goals to work on.
Monitoring and assessing of ‘where children are at’ is a critical aspect of ensuring all student’s needs are best met. It is a hugely valued element of effective teaching and a most important part of being a parent.
Within a class it takes the form of formal testing, observations, achievement of tasks, student presentations, external testing (Naplan), information from home, at times complex speech and psychological evaluations and much, much more.
All grade levels hold an information session early in the year to explain class procedures, expectations and curriculum plans for the year.
We also have formal and informal progress interviews during the year. This process allows the students to have input in their progress. If you feel that you would like a meeting with your child’s teacher please do not hesitate to arrange a meeting at any time during the year.
A number of students will have Individual Learning Plans (ILP’s) as part of their learning. These plans are developed by the school and families to cater for individual needs. Each term, teachers will meet with relevant parents or carers regarding ILP development.
