Early in the year parents get the opportunity to meet the teacher, Introductions / Relationships / Connections any other information which will support student learning. Students can introduce their parents to their teacher/s and show them around the school including DPE-. A follow-up with any individual parents /private meeting if needed on request.
The student/teacher conferences take place twice a year and will take 10min. The first of which is supported by the mid-year report.
There are two formal written reports that go home.
The report will contain a student reflection and a teacher personalised comment.
Aspire, skills, and foundation learning will be reported using wedge indicators, which will show the level of attainment. Wellbeing will also be captured by wedges which will be completed through student reflection.
Teachers use a variety of sources as set out in the healthy practice pyramid to inform their decision on where a student is working at.
Our philosophy is for parents to have access to their child’s learning throughout the year in a variety of means and not rely solely on reports. The most comprehensive information you can receive about your child’s progress is through meeting their teacher so I encourage everyone to make an appointment during learning conferences.
