Assessment occurs throughout the year in both formal and informal situations and allows teachers to provide opportunities to foster the growth of the individual child by allowing them to plan for educational activities to suit the needs of the students. Reporting is the formal times (Parent, student teacher interviews and written reports) throughout the year when the school communicates with parents about their child’s learning. An overview of our current practice is as follows:
Parents who wish to discuss their child’s academic progress or behaviour are encouraged to make an appointment in the first instance with the class teacher. A meeting with the class teacher and Principal may be organised on the initiative of either of the people involved.
