 Assessment and Reporting

​Assessing children’s work and reporting progress to parents are among the most important features of a modern primary school.  Progressive assessment of each child as an individual person is made as he/she grows and develops in all areas of his/her education. Assessment techniques include observation, focused analysis, self & peer assessment and consultation. 
 
Open communication concerning children’s progress is encouraged throughout the school year. Interviews with teachers may be arranged at any time throughout the school year to discuss the children’s work.  Samples of work will be available on these occasions. We believe that true partnership can only be achieved when the communication between home and school is free-flowing.  Accordingly we report on children’s progress to parents by establishing the following:
  • Parent Information Night – held in first weeks of Term 1 to inform parents of class procedures, routines and curriculum.

  • Beginning of Term Letter – sent home at the end of the first week of Term 2, 3 and 4 to inform parents of class curriculum for that term and any special events occurring within the term.

  • Celebration of Learning and of the Arts Night – held during Term 3 to allow parents an opportunity to view displays of children’s work undertaken from all year levels.

  • Formal reporting procedures.

    • End of Term 1

      • Parent / teacher interviews for parents with children in Prep to Year 6. 

    • End of Term 2

      • Formal report card sent home to parents of children in Prep  to Year 6 covering all Key Learning Areas.
