Teachers assess and gather evidence of student learning by a variety of means throughout the year. Evidence gathered informs future teaching and learning. It is used to promote learning through the provision of feedback to students, and to guide teacher decisions about what needs to come next for each student. Evidence of each student’s learning is gathered in an assessment folio.
Teachers formally report to parents about student progress at the end of each term.
Parent/Teacher interviews are offered at the end of Term 1 and Term 3. As well as this, parents are invited to make an appointment with their child’s classroom teacher to discuss their child’s progress at any time. Teachers may also request a meeting with parents to discuss progress outside of the formal reporting time.
Written reports are sent home for all students at the end of Term 2 and Term 4.
Year 3 and 5 students participate in NAPLAN in May, and results are distributed in September.
