Assessment and Reporting

kiamasquare21Effective assessment and reporting is integral to the provision of quality learning and teaching. Based on the principle that all students can learn, quality assessment and reporting practices recognise that they must be provided with appropriate opportunities to demonstrate their achievements. Students are entitled to meaningful feedback regarding their learning, to be challenged, to take responsibility for their own learning and to be motivated to achieve their full potential.

The school recognises the important partnership that must exist between home and school.   Comprehensive and regular reporting to parents is essential for supporting parents to guide their child’s learning and educational choices. Reporting to key stakeholders is crucial in building a culture of accountability and shared responsibility within our school community.

Reporting occurs through curriculum notes outlining the term’s course of study, parent information evenings, newsletter articles, children’s books taken home each term and parent/teacher/child interviews. For Years 1 – 6 written reports are provided at the end of Terms 2 and 4 with an opportunity for parent / teacher conferences after distribution. Kindergarten classes provide an oral report at the end of Semester One and a written report at the end of Semester Two.
