Reporting to Parents

Parents like to know how their child is progressing at school. Teachers too like to keep parents informed. By working together, you will know how your child is progressing.

Teachers use a variety of techniques to gather information about your child's progress through observations, test results, class work, assignments and projects, anecdotal records and homework.

This information is collected throughout the year. Teachers utilise this information to help them inform parents about your child's progress.

At the end of term 1 the parents and care givers are invited to attend a parent/teacher interview to discuss student progress, social interactions and address any concerns. This also gives parents an opportunity to establish an open line of communication between home and the classroom.

In June parents receive a written academic report.

In December, parents receive a final written report for the academic year.

When teachers set assessment tasks, children are made aware of what is expected such as:

Parents are able to view their child's assessment tasks and class work during the reporting to parents times.

Teachers will send home a variety of work throughout the year as the need arises. Teachers will also report to parents on their child's work habits, attitude and behaviour.

Communication

At the beginning of the school year, all teachers conduct a Meet the Teacher get-together. These are designed to inform parents about the teaching and learning program and other related activities.

Class newsletters are sent home early in the term to keep parents informed about the class programs.

Regular communication between home and school is encouraged. Parents are requested to make an appointment with the teacher at anytime throughout the year if there are any concerns.
