Reporting & Assessment

In reporting orally and in written form to parents/caregivers the school will endeavour to be open and honest as well as encouraging. Each child will be looked at as a unique individual with varying talents and abilities. 

 

In 2018 we aim to transition to Seesaw for Schools which is an online programme that enables on-going communication between home and school together with providing parents with up to date information about progress and achievement.

 

The reporting to parents’ processes are as follows:

Term 1:  3 Way Conferences followed by a written summary of achievement in relation to the New Zealand Curriculum together with student goals.

Term 2: Seesaw portfolio which will include progress against the New Zealand Curriculum in reading, writing, maths, progress against student goals, and an example of discovery learning (depending on the curriculum focus for the term, science, technology, Health, Social Studies)

Term 3:  3 Way Conferences followed by a written summary of student achievement in relation to the New Zealand Curriculum together with student goals. 

Term 4: Seesaw portfolio which will include progress against the New Zealand Curriculum in reading, writing, maths, progress against student goals, and an example of discovery learning (depending on the curriculum focus for the term, science, technology, Health, Social Studies)
