Reporting and assessment are vital components of the teaching and learning process at St Andrew’s. Progressive assessment of each child is made as he/she grows and develops in all areas of his/her education.
Assessment of students’ achievements occurs for a variety of reasons:
to provide information on students progress;
to improve the learning processes by providing feedback;
to keep parents informed;
to guide future development.
Open communication concerning your child’s progress is encouraged throughout the school year. Interviews with teachers may be arranged at any time by appointment to discuss your child's work. We believe that true partnership can only be achieved when the communication between home and school is free flowing.
Accordingly we report to parents by establishing the following:
Parent Information Night – held in the first weeks of Term 1 to inform parents of curriculum matters, and class procedures. We would encourage you to attend this evening, as it is an important information source..
Beginning of Term letter – sent home in the first weeks of each term: to inform parents of class curriculum for that term and any special events occurring within the term. It will also provide you with valuable information on how you can support and be involved in the classroom and at home.
Formal reporting procedures occur at the end of the following terms:
Term 2 (Semester 1) - Written report with parent and teacher interview.
Term 4 (Semester 2) - Written report with parent and teacher interview by arrangement.
Reporting from Prep to Year 6 describes individual student progress against the achievement standards within the Australian National Curriculum.
