Reporting to Parents
The reporting process includes:
- TERM ONE: Parent Information Night
- TERM TWO: Parent-Student-Teacher 3-way Conferences and summative Report
- TERM THREE: Parent-Student-Teacher Conferences at parents request
- TERM FOUR: Summative Report
Teachers use a variety of assessment and reporting strategies with their students throughout the year. These include standardised spelling, maths and comprehension tests. Teachers may also listen to and test students reading on a regular basis. Students in years 3 and 5 take part in the National Assessment Program – Literacy And Numeracy at the beginning of Term 2 and results are sent home towards the end of Term 3.
Year Levels and Progress
In general, children progress through school with children of their own age and social development.
A wide range of ability levels is found in all class groups. Due to the size of our school all classes have combined year levels, usually with two-year levels in a class.
Placement in class groups, taking account of each child’s learning needs, is made in consultation with parents, teachers and the principal.
