Our School - Reporting to parents

Schools are required to provide a written (print or digital) student report at least twice a year to the parents or carers of each child enrolled at the school. Schools are required to report against the Victorian Curriculum F-10 achievement standards, which includes towards foundation levels A-D.
Both achievement and progress against the achievement standards are required to be included in the student report.
Opportunities must be provided for parents/carers and students to discuss the school report with teachers and/or school leaders.

Parent/Teacher Partnership Meetings

We encourage parents and guardians to speak with classroom teachers regularly as learning occurs best when there is a strong partnership between students, parents, and teachers. To support this partnership, we encourage communication on Seesaw, phone calls and after school informal visits by appointment. Teachers are unavailable on Monday and Wednesday due to scheduled whole staff professional learning and meetings.

Parents/Teacher Partnership meetings (Term 2) creates an opportunity to:

  • share academic progress and growth based on classroom observations, testing data, assessments, portfolios, and assignments.
  • learn from parents or guardians so you can be better informed about students' strengths, needs, behaviours, and learning styles.

  • discuss enrichment or intervention strategies to support students' learning.

  • discuss issues that may be interfering with students' learning and growth.

Student led conferences (Term 4) encourage students to talk to their parents about the learning, their thinking processes, their progress in all areas of their learning and wellbeing and also teaches them how to link evidence of their learning through producing work samples. The aim of the conference is for students to explain to parents, using examples, how far they have progressed throughout the year. During student-led conferences, teachers act as facilitators as students review their work and progress with their parents.
