Reporting to Parents

Our school reports to parents in two ways.

Written Reports

At the beginning of the year a 5 week summary is sent home, indicating how your child is settling into the school year.

Towards the end of Term 2, a mid-year report will be issued. It will be a summary of your child’s progress and achievements for the first six months of the year. Your child’s progress is assessed in relation to the National Standards. There will be next steps for numeracy and literacy included in this report. These indicate how you can help your child at home.

An end-of-year report will be issued in the last week of the year. It will be a summary of your child’s progress and achievements for the year. Your child’s progress is assessed in relation to the National Standards.

Parent Interviews

After approximately six weeks of school parent interviews will be held. This is an opportunity to meet your child’s teacher and inform them about your child. This could include information about your child’s health and home situation, sharing your child’s strengths and any concerns with the teacher.

These interviews are triadic, which means that your child takes an active role. Goals are set for your child to focus on for the first six months of the year. These are constructed by the child, teacher and parent.

At the end of Term 2, interviews are held after the reports are sent home. Again these are triadic interviews. The reports are discussed and new goals are set for the next six months.

The link for booking parent interviews is http://www.schoolinterviews.co.nz  The code for this session is XM26X.

Our school has an open door policy and parents are encouraged to talk to their child’s teacher whenever they have a concern or want something clarified. You can also contact the teacher via email.
