Reporting to Parents
Communication of student progress and achievement is vital to the partnership between parents and teachers.
This is accomplished in several ways, both formally and informally.
February. Pod Information Evenings ( Pods 1, 2 and 3)
February Pod Information Evenings/Camp meeting ( Pod 4)
Teaching teams will explain to parents the organisation of classes, expectations held for students and arrangements for the coming year.
- March. Early Parent Teacher Conferences
This conference is designed to allow teachers and parents to make contact early in the year to share information about a child or regarding issues related to home and school. Any goals set can be reviewed during the year.
- End of Term 2 – Midyear Learner Update
This is composed of Tables and comment which detail progress and effort in Learning Competencies and Curriculum Areas
- End of Term 2 Parent Teacher Child Conferences
These are structured to allow discussion of all school activity and progress with all three partners in the learning partnership involved. Students will have the opportunity to share work samples.
- End of Term 4 – End of Year Learner Update
Progress and Achievement across the whole year is presented in the form of tables and as a General Comment.
Non Routine Reporting
Parents’ requests for a teacher interview will be acceptable by arrangement. Please phone the office and the teacher will ring back later and arrange an appointment at a mutually agreeable time. Reasons should be given so that any necessary information can be available.
